      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Ethel Shannon McKinney, 28, was booked on two counts of attempted second-degree murder and illegal use of a weapon, said Jason Ard, a spokesman for the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Department.

McKinney and her boyfriend got into an argument about 9:30 p.m. Sunday with the men over the damaged decorations, and McKinney allegedly fired at the men, Ard said.

One man was hit in the upper torso and arm, the other in an arm. The injuries were not life threatening, Ard said.

McKinney's boyfriend, Audie Ray Criswell, was booked on two counts of aggravated assault and with disturbing the peace, Ard said.
