An Indiana County woman was charged this weekend with shooting her boyfriend in the parking lot of a local elementary school.

The victim, who was not named, was taken to Indiana Regional Medical Center, where officials said he suffered a superficial wound.

State police in Indiana said Jennifer Rose Neese, 37, of Commodore was driving with her boyfriend on Route 286 in Montgomery Township just before 11 p.m. Friday when, as they argued, she pulled over in the parking lot of Purchase Line Elementary School, retrieved a loaded .380-caliber pistol from her pocket, left the car and pointed the weapon at her boyfriend.

Police said Neese fired one shot through the driver's door of the vehicle, striking the 42-year-old victim in the leg.

Police arrested Neese at the home she shared with the victim.

Neese was charged with reckless endangerment and was in the Indiana County jail after she was unable to post a $25,000 cash bond set by Magisterial District Judge Guy Haberl.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
