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.
