— Three people told police that a Clover woman got out her car and pointed a handgun at them before firing shots at her ex-husband’s girlfriend on Sunday.

Police have charged Sandra Williams Cobb, 58, with attempted murder and two counts of pointing and presenting a firearm at a person, according to a York County Sheriff’s report. By Monday morning, Cobb, who lives at 2765 Kingsbury Road, was being held at the York County Detention Center without bond.

Deputies received a call about a shooting at Wildlife Ridge Drive and learned that the suspect, Cobb, had possibly gone to her home nearby. Cobb told police she went to her ex-husband’s home to speak with him, but he warned her that if she came over, he’d kill her, the report states. Cobb took the gun with her for protection before getting out her car and immediately going after her ex-husband’s girlfriend, according to the report.

She said he pushed her to the ground, got her handgun out her car and then fired it, the report states.

But, three others --including Cobb’s ex-husband, his girlfriend and a friend-- all say Cobb got out her car with the gun already in hand, pointed it at all three of them and fired at the woman.

The woman dodged the bullet, the report states, while Cobb’s ex-husband “took Sandra to the ground” and the friend snatched the gun away. Police found Cobb’s gun, along with four bullets, at the house and placed her under arrest.
