Aloha woman arrested after bullets hit homes

Washington County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the 15900 block of Southwest Gilmore Court in Aloha at 7:06 p.m. June 19 on a report of a bullet hole in the wall of a homeowner.

Deputies were investigating the bullet hole when they heard a gunshot inside a neighbor’s house. They saw two bullet holes in the side of the house where they heard the shot and later found a second bullet hole in the victim’s house. Deputies called in the Washington County Tactical Negotiations Team and the Washington County Hostage Negotiations Team.

During an evacuation of neighbors in the surrounding homes, deputies discovered another house that was hit by a bullet. No one was injured.

Deputies tried to communicate with people inside the suspect’s house for several hours. Eventually, they were able to contact Alisha Mannis, 41, and convinced her to leave the house. Deputies received permission from Mannis to search the house, and they subsequently located the gun allegedly fired by Mannis.

Mannis was arrested for alleged unlawful use of a weapon and recklessly endangering another person, and was booked into the Washington County Jail.

Authorities believe intoxication was a factor in the incident.
