Multiple shots were fired from outside the fence that encircles the station. Bullets struck the building and vehicles in the parking lot.
No one was hurt, but one employee was sitting near a second-floor window when it was hit by a bullet from a semi-automatic pistol.
Witnesses tell police they saw Burks shooting toward the building before she took off in a Camaro. She was detained by police on Richmond Avenue.
“We have several witnesses who say she was shooting at the building and into the parking lot and at the windows in the building,” HPD Sgt. Julie Pleasant said. “We did recover casings in the parking lot. We also recovered casings from the building.”
She also says on Facebook that she is ex-U.S. Navy, which we have not yet confirmed.
