A Gulfport, Mississippi, woman was arrested this week after allegedly firing a gun into a car full of children, according to reports.

During the fight, one of the women attempted to get into her vehicle and escape the scene with her three children inside.

But the other woman, Labrittani Watts, 22, allegedly brandished a gun and started shooting at the vehicle.

As Watts fired the gun, the other woman jumped out and into the path of the vehicle before getting run over.

Although the woman was injured by getting run over by her own vehicle, no one was struck by Watts' gunfire, according to police.
