HOOPER, Weber County — A woman who called 911 to report that she shot someone has been arrested, according to deputies with the Weber County Sheriff’s Office.

WCSO Lt. Colby Ryan said deputies responded to the area of 6200 West and 5700 South before 11 p.m. on Tuesday after receiving the 911 call. First responders found the 43-year-old man who was shot inside the home and began providing medical aid until he was taken to a local hospital in critical condition.

The woman was taken into custody a short distance from the home. Ryan said their investigation is ongoing but this appears to be an isolated incident and there is no threat to the community.

According to booking information provided by the WCSO, the woman is Leeann Mikea Comish, age 40. She was charged with attempted murder, possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person, disorderly conduct, discharge of a firearm within city limits, possession of a controlled substance or analog, possession of marijuana or spice, and use or possession of drug paraphernalia.

District Court Judge Noel S. Hyde ordered that Comish be held without bail, determining that she “would constitute a substantial danger to any other individual or the community, or is likely to flee the jurisdiction of the court if released on bail.”

Lt. Ryan told KSL TV that the victim is currently in stable condition.
