Concord woman charged with reckless conduct after shooting gun in home

A Concord woman has been charged with reckless conduct after the police said she shot a bullet inside her home. That bullet exited the Pembroke Road residence in the direction of a heavily residential area, according to the police, who said the act placed others in danger.

The police said officers were called to the home, near the intersection of Pembroke and Canterbury roads, at about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday for a report of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Officers
made contact with Renita Meisenburg, who was holding a gun when they arrived, the police said. The woman told
officers she had not in fact shot herself but had
discharged a gun into her ceiling.

During a brief struggle, one officer shocked the woman with a stun gun while others wrestled the handgun from her. She was transported to Concord Hospital for evaluation, where she was arraigned yesterday. The charge is a Class B felony.
