Around 8:32 am today, in the 700 block of Shell Ave, an argument occurred between several people that knew each other. The argument turned into a fight and two men fell into a large plate glass window, causing it to break and cut the two men.
The fiancé of one of the men, Dawn Iverson, age 46 and resident of Martinez, ran to the aide of her fiancé. Iverson fired a pistol, striking the other man in the torso.
The injured man and his mother drove from the scene and were contacted by Martinez Police. The injured man was transported to John Muir Hospital where he was treated and is in stable condition.
Iverson was arrested for Assault with a Deadly Weapon and she was booked into the Contra Costa County Jail in Martinez, where she was held on a $50,000 bail.
She was released, and the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office declined to file charges against her.
