A Kodiak woman was arrested after allegedly firing shots at a resident on Selief Lane over the weekend. 

Ceilidh Prater, 30, is facing two counts of felony assault in the third degree, according to court documents. 

On Saturday at 8:12 a.m., a woman called 911 and told dispatch that she was being harassed at her home on Selief Lane. 

A reporting officer from Kodiak Police Department saw Prater standing in a gravel parking lot with a small, purple handgun drawn and pointed downward. Another person who was standing next to Prater was also holding a drawn handgun. 

After the officer separated the two people from their handguns, the woman who reported the incident and her neighbor from across the street began yelling that they had been shot at. 

The woman who had called 911 told the officer that she had been walking to her residence when Prater asked her “where her child was.” The woman then went to her neighbor’s home across the street, said the police report. 

The woman said she was standing in the street when Prater allegedly told her that she had a gun and fired it.

The officer then asked the neighbor across the street what happened during the incident. 

The neighbor said that the woman asked him to go outside because Prater was harassing her. He told the officer that he was putting on his shoes when he heard something go over his head, accompanied by a loud bang. The neighbor said he thought he was being shot at and saw Prater point the gun at him, said the police report. 

Prater told police that the woman approached her near her vehicle. She told the woman to stay away from her because she had a gun. She told police that the woman called her an expletive and thought she was going to try to fight her. 

A routine check through the national Criminal Information Center revealed that Prater had been charged with battery, robbery and shoplifting in California in 2007. 

Police arrested Pratter and transported her to the Kodiak City jail. Her next court hearing will occur on Nov. 13 at 11 a.m.

Pratter’s two counts are class C felonies, which can each result in a prison term of up to five years and a fine of up to $50,000.
