CALERA, OK - A woman is jailed in Bryan County after police say she showed up at her ex-boyfriend's house with a gun and opened fire over the weekend.

24-year-old Amber Denise White is facing a list of charges for the incident Saturday night.
Calera police say around ten o'clock White showed up at her ex boyfriend's house in the three hundred block of North McKinley.
She first asked her ex to come outside and talk, when he did police say she pulled a gun on him and chased him back in the house, firing 3 shots.
His 2 daughters were inside the home.
Chief Don Hyde says, luckily no one was hurt.

"It just goes to show as we were discussing earlier that there are victims of domestic violence predominantly are females." said Chief Hyde.

"National statistics say anywhere from 85 to 95 percent of victims are female so that leaves a range of 5 to 15 percent of victims being male nationally." said crisis center advocate, Anna Marcy.

Chief Hyde says this wasn't the first time the victim had called them to the house because of White, however, he says it is rare for males to report domestic violence.
Crisis center advocate, Anna Marcy, agrees.

"Most often men feel that they should be able to handle their problems, their issues with the violence at home, they often don't want to report it for the same reasons that females don't wish to report it." Marcy said.

Marcy says it's important for victims to make reports, whether female or male.

"In many cases such as this it is advantageous legally to have that paper trail to back up a case." said Marcy.

Among the charges White faces are two counts of shooting with intent to kill and child endangerment.
