A Warrenton woman has been charged with attempted murder following a Sunday night domestic dispute that led to a shooting in Bealeton.

Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded around 9:19 p.m. to a call of a shooting at 7182 Covingtons Corner Road in Bealeton. Upon arrival, they found a victim, identified as Richard Harman, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound.

Witness statements led law enforcement to conclude that Jeannie Dolores Whitt, of Warrenton, and Harman had an argument at the residence. Afterward, Whitt fired a bullet from a handgun from outside the home. The bullet went through a glass door and struck Harmon.

In addition to attempted murder, Whitt, 45, has been charged with use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and shooting into an occupied dwelling.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.

Whitt is being held at the Fauquier County Adult Detention Center without bond.

Harman was treated for his injuries at a trauma center. His condition was not immediately known.

Chances are high she gets a lighter sentence than the J6ers. Judges are more lenient for female defendants in general.
