TEXARKANA, Texas -- A fight between two women in a residential Texarkana, Texas, neighborhood on Sunday ended with one in the hospital and another in the Bowie County jail.

Jacaria Lloyd, 28, is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and is currently in the Bowie County jail with bail set at $100,000. Lloyd allegedly shot a 30-year-old woman in the leg Sunday in front of a home in the 3800 block of Hazel Street, according to a probable cause affidavit.

When investigators arrived at the house, the woman who had been shot had been transported to a local hospital and patrol officers had Lloyd detained on the porch. An officer with the woman at the hospital reported that the woman thought she had been shot by a 12-year-old.

But Lloyd allegedly told officers it was her that shot the woman while the two were fighting in the yard near the shooting victim's car. Officers noticed several pieces of hair weave and signs of a struggle in the yard near the car owned by the woman who was shot.

Lloyd allegedly told officers that she had recently moved in with her boyfriend at the Hazel Street house and that the woman had dropped off a child she shares with Lloyd's boyfriend earlier in the day. Lloyd allegedly had a .40 caliber handgun in her hoodie when the other woman returned.

Lloyd allegedly claimed that the other woman pushed her way into the house and began fighting her. Lloyd allegedly reported that when the fight moved outside she hit the other woman in the head with her gun and then shot the other woman in the leg when she continued to fight.

If Lloyd is convicted of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, she faces two to 20 years in a Texas prison.
