Wixom — A 31-year-old West Bloomfield Township woman was charged Tuesday in the early Sunday morning shooting of a Wixom woman at an apartment complex.

Lt. Ronald Moore said Dana Ashley Burton is charged with assault with intent to commit murder and possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony. Burton is held in the Oakland County Jail in lieu of $500,000 bond pending a Nov. 18 preliminary hearing.

“We have talked with the victim this week and she is in stable condition with a non-life threatening wound,” said Moore.

Moore said the incident started shortly before 2 a.m. on Tamarack in the Village Apartments, after an argument between the two women.

A preliminary investigation indicates the argument was over a man both women had dated.
