When police arrived, they found a juvenile male suffering from a laceration to his thigh. He reportedly told police he had been shot with a bow and arrow. He was immediately taken to a local hospital where he is said to be in stable condition.

Officers found several arrows in the grass and on a roof near the scene.

The suspect, identified as Chelsie Marinos Huggins, 38, was on the roof of her residence when she got into a verbal altercation with the juvenile male, according to witnesses.

Witnesses also told police Huggins had a rifle and handgun with her while she was on the roof. She allegedly pointed the weapons at the juvenile, according to arresting documents.

The witness stated she saw the boy get hit with something, but did not hear any gunshots then noticed the juvenile was bleeding from the leg. They said they also heard Huggins tell the juvenile to not come back or she would kill him.

An ATV was also found in the middle of the road at the scene, which police say may have been used by the suspect to chase the juvenile down.

West Jordan Police Officer Jennifer Worthen said the two are not related but at one time, the juvenile lived in the same home as Huggins.

Huggins faces charges of felony aggravated assault and child abuse.
