A 20-year-old Beaufort woman shot out of her car window at a man with whom she was involved and then fled police late Saturday, leading to her arrest a short time later, according to the Port Royal Police Department.

Cassandra Maura Ramos went to the Walmart on Robert Smalls Parkway in Beaufort on Saturday night to meet up with a man she "had some kind of relationship with," said Port Royal Deputy Chief Ron Wekenmann.

The two "had some kind of a disagreement," and Ramos allegedly shot out of the window of her car at the man, Wekenmann said.

Ramos then drove off, evading police until she was stopped by Port Royal officers near Naval Hospital Beaufort. She admitted to firing the shots, Wekenmann said. She was arrested at about 11:30 p.m.

Ramos is being held at the Beaufort County Detention Center for attempted murder and failure to stop for blue lights, according to the jail log. She also faces three weapons charges: unlawful carrying of a firearm, possession of a concealed weapon and possession of a weapon in the commission of a violent crime.

Her bond is set at $111,097.50, according to the jail log.

Wekenmann said no one was injured in the shooting and there is no evidence property was damaged.

He said more details would be released today.
