RADCLIFF, Ky. (WAVE) – A Radcliff woman is in jail after police say she broke into her ex-boyfriend’s home, destroyed the place and shot a gun through a door before smashing his car and running away.

According to WAVE 3 News, Leslie Meredith, 31, has been charged with several charges including attempted murder, burglary and theft. Authorities say she broke into her ex’s home just after 1 a.m. in Radcliff.

While inside, they say she started smashing windows and pulling pictures off the walls. One picture was thrown with such force, it became embedded into a wall.

The victim and his current girlfriend had barricaded themselves in a bedroom. That’s when authorities say that Meredith fired a gun through the door, barely missing her ex.

Police also say that she had her young child with her the entire time. She is lodged in the Hardin County Detention Center.
