HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Police say a Pennsylvania woman who was asked to prove her gun was real fired a shot into a wall, narrowly missing her ex-boyfriend's head.

Twenty-four-year-old Yangny Hoang was charged Sunday with attempted murder and reckless endangerment in the shooting Sunday at the ex-boyfriend's home in Susquehanna Township, near Harrisburg.

She's jailed in lieu of $100,000 bail pending a Nov. 12 preliminary hearing.

Online court records say Hoang is represented by the Dauphin County public defender's office, but the office says it doesn't have a record of her case.

Police say the ex-boyfriend suggested Hoang fire the gun at the wall after he noticed it in a holster on her waist.
