Police arrest man accused of firing shot that critically injured Stowe woman
Police on Monday arrested the man accused of firing a gunshot that hit a 60-year-old woman in the head as she sat in the living room of her home in Stowe.
Police obtained an arrest warrant for Oneal Olive, 21, charging him with aggravated assault, weapons violations including carrying a firearm without a license, reckless endangerment and firing a gun into an occupied home, Lt. Andrew Schurman said. He was taken into custody and brought to county police headquarters about 5 p.m. Olive turned himself in to authorities.
The victim was not the intended target, Schurman said. She is hospitalized in critical condition.
Detectives suspect Olive was trying to shoot someone in front of a home near the woman's in the Pleasant Ridge housing complex about 9:30 p.m. Sunday, Schurman said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
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.
