Butte woman faces felony charges after shooting gun in Butte lounge

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: 11/14/17, 8 A.M. - VIDEO AND COURT TESTIMONY ADDED TO STORY.

BUTTE - A Butte woman who allegedly fired a gun at a person inside an Uptown Butte lounge was seen in court Monday morning.

Sarah Baldwin, 31, faces two felony charges of attempted deliberate homicide and two counts of criminal endangerment in connection with firing a handgun inside the Acoma Lounge in Butte early Sunday morning.

Court documents allege Baldwin fired a gun at a male bouncer of the Acoma Lounge on East Broadway after being told to leave just before closing time at 2 a.m. on Sunday.

After she allegedly fired the shot, a female employee wrestled Baldwin to the ground, where she allegedly fired a second shot in the bar. The employee was able to get Baldwin out of the bar and police took her into custody.

No one was injured in the shooting, however,  the first shot came very close to hitting the bouncer.

"The bouncer was wearing two shirts, the round traveled through both shirts and then did not strike him at all," said Butte Sheriff Ed Lester. "We're very fortunate, that's about as close as you can get to actually being shot."

Baldwin was charged with two felony counts of criminal endangerment and a misdemeanor count of carrying a concealed weapon under the influence and in a prohibited place.

Baldwin's bond was set at $100,000.
