Brandi Nichole Almond, 32, of Inman, has been charged with three counts of attempted murder. She’s also charged with pointing a firearm at a person and third-degree assault and battery.

Deputies responded to a domestic disturbance at Almond’s home on Wednesday.

When they arrived on scene, officers saw a man standing in the yard and heard gunfire that sounded as though it was coming from inside the home, according to an incident report.
