On August 16th, authorities went to 1046 Litton Ave in response to shots fired. Tawanna Cowan was at the home to pick up some of her belongings, and she was poking holes in the back bedroom window with an unknown object. Tawanna’s mother, Currie Cowan called James Cowan to return to the home and when he did, Tawanna threw a beer bottle at his truck. Tawanna then grabbed and pulled Charles Mclin’s hair from behind. Both James and Mclin were attempting to go into the house when Tawanna grabbed Mclin around his neck and began punching him.
James left the altercation with cuts on his face, and during the kerfuffle, had thrown a beer bottle that broke Tawanna’s car window. James also dropped his keys in the exchange, and Tawanna took his keys and drove away in his truck. Within five minutes she came back and tried to run over James in his own vehicle twice. James then went inside, grabbed his handgun, and then started shooting at his own vehicle’s tires in an attempt to stop Tawanna from leaving. Although his gun jammed, James managed to shoot out his own windshield.
Tawanna Cowan was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Her bond was set at $10,000.
