MARTIN COUNTY - We have new information on the woman that climbed the radio tower in Stanton with a gun on Sunday.

We're now learning that she actually fired four shots at the crowd of authorities down below.

Fortunately, no one was hit with a bullet.

She eventually came down and the Martin County Sheriff convinced her to hand over the semi-automatic handgun.

Officials are still trying to determine who the gun belonged to.

She was then taken to the Big Spring State Hospital where she underwent a medical evaluation.

No charges have been files as of yet.

Martin County Sheriff John Woodward says this isn't the first time the woman has scaled the tower.
