Two men told police they were out raccoon hunting with their dog when it ran off. The dog had a GPS device so the men tracked it to Ridgewood Road.

According to the affidavit, Pepin told the men she had the dog and invited them inside. When the men declined, police say Pepin went inside, grabbed a gun and came back outside, pointing the gun at the men. Officers say as they were backing out of the driveway, she started shooting, firing about 15 shots. 

Officers say Pepin admitted to shooting at the men and to drinking. Officers reporting finding shell casing outside her house. The arrest affidavit makes no mention of what happened to the dog the men were looking for.
