DETROIT (WJBK) – A woman’s angry Facebook video about a house she bought through the Detroit Land Bank resulted in her arrest.
In the video, the woman pulls out a gun and shoots the house behind her, while holding a small child with a second child next to her. The profane tirade which includes her making threats lasts about nine minutes while a young boy next to her worriedly backs away after she shoots the house.
Detroit police say that the woman, Andrea Sheppard, was arrested Friday in Oakland County, one day after the video was posted on social media. She was not with her two children at the time she was taken into custody, police said adding that they are safe.
The video was shot in the 16800 block of Greydale. The Detroit News reports that before it was taken down, it had gathered more than 741,000 views. It has been removed, but a copies of it have been shared online, and can be found on Facebook.
