The department said the 22-year-old Georgia woman checked out of a Florida hotel Monday and started driving west on Interstate 10. She fired into two cars and injured both drivers. Both survived. Troopers stopped her and found an AR-15 rifle and a 9mm handgun in her car. She has been arrested and charged with attempted murder.
