A Dallas woman has been charged with aggravated assault and deadly conduct following an argument with her girlfriend early Sunday morning, June 28, that ended in gunfire.

According to the Dallas Police Department blog, at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday, Katara Walker, 30, and her 28-year-old girlfriend, Joy Johnson, got into an argument inside their apartment in the 9300 block of Skillman Avenue.

Police reports said when the argument escalated, Walker “produced a handgun” and fired several rounds at Johnson. Johnson was not struck by any of the shots, but several did go through the wall and into an adjacent apartment.

Johnson ran from the scene and called police. Responding officers established a perimeter around the apartment and called in SWAT. At about 4:45 a.m., a SWAT negotiator was able to make contact with Walker, convincing her to surrender without any further trouble.

According to the Dallas County website, Walker remains in custody, with her total bond set at $26,500 — $25,000 on the aggravated assault charge and $1,500 on the deadly conduct charge.
