INDIANA – A Wadesville, Indiana woman has been arrested after she shot and killed another woman who was chasing a dog through her property.

Posey County officials said 29 year-old Nicole Stroud was chasing her dog through Melinda Lindauer's property last week Thursday.

According to authorities, Lindauer was allegedly trying to shoot the dog but hit Stroud instead. Stroud was at her grandmother's house for the holiday when the dog got out – and ran to the Lindauer residence, which is located directly behind Stroud's grandmother's home.

Lindauer was arrested on charges of involuntary manslaughter and reckless homicide – no court date has been set.

Authorities say there's no evidence the shooting was intentional, but an investigation is underway.

wait a minute something is really missing here! Why was the lady shooting the dog anyways? Because it was on the property or was is after a kid or something? Or this there already something going on between the to owners? People are so strange. I can't imagine shooting a dog just running in my yard? I fi was going to eat me or had rabies....maybe....probably not I GUESS i'M JUST TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY THIS LADY WAS SHOOTING ANYTHING??
