An elderly California woman was arrested Friday night after she allegedly shot a gun in the direction of her neighbor’s children, because they “amsterdam.”

Betty Frances Sanders, 84, fired a gun in the direction of the three children in the age group of 8 to 10 — as they drive on their motorcycles in their home in Anderson, Redding Record Searchlight reported.

The family was in the front yard of their property if Sanders and her husband approached the fence separating their two yards, the children of the mother, Angela Rollins, told the deputies with the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office.

Sanders reportedly complained about the children being too loud, which escalated into an argument.

The woman then shot her gun in the direction of the family which is about 20 metres away, according to deputies.

No one was injured in the incident.

Sanders was arrested on suspicion of assault with a firearm and child endangering, and transported to the Shasta County Jail. Record Searchlight reported her bail is set at $ 50,000.
