CANDIA — A mother accused of firing a handgun while keeping her 12-year-old daughter inside their home remains behind bars as she awaits a bail hearing scheduled for Thursday.
State police and SWAT were deployed to a home on North Road for a report of a distraught female.
Deborah Deslongchamps, 45 of Candia, fired a handgun, while not allowing her daughter to leave the home, police said. The daughter was able to escape through a side door and came out unharmed.
Not long after, a second shot was fired with one of the projectiles hitting the side door that the daughter ran out from, officials said. Deslongchamps was arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child, false imprisonment and reckless conduct.
Candia Police Chief Michael McGillen said it is unclear if the mother was firing at her own daughter, and it is unclear what led her to this emotional state.
Deslongchamps mental status is part of the investigation, McGillen said.
