Sharon D. Hallman, 68, pointed a replica shotgun at firefighters at her south Thurston County home. The incident took place on Wednesday. Hallman appeared Thursday before Superior Court Judge James Dixon and set bail at $2,500 for her. They have found a replica shotgun on her porch.
During the hearing, both Deputy Prosecutor Brandi Archer and Public Defender Eric Pilon asked that Hallmon undergo a mental health evaluation. Dixon said he didnt believe Hallman had a full appreciation of what was happening, and ordered a mental health evaluation in addition to setting bail.
Just before 2 p.m. Wednesday, firefighters from Thurston County fire districts 12 and 15 responded to a request for assistance at a home on the 21500 block of Bucoda Highway Southeast. The firefighters reported that a woman had pointed and fired a shotgun at them. Deputies responded to the home and were able to get the firefighters to safety.
Firefighters reported that they had responded to Hallmans mobile home after a life alert alarm went off. They said they had responded to her home the previous day, and she had become combative. They had noticed what appeared to be a shotgun propped against the door but it wasnt used then.
When firefighters arrived at the home Wednesday, they found Hallman lying on the floor just inside the door. At first, they couldnt understand what she was saying. Eventually, she said there wasnt a fire in her house and shut the door. She allegedly jumped up, ripped down the blinds, grabbed what appeared to be a shotgun, and pointed it at a firefighters face.
The firefighters ran toward the trees, and reported that they heard what sounded like shotgun fire. Deputies were eventually able to open a door at the back of the home and arrest Hallman about 4 p.m.
