A woman who deputies say fired a gun during a dispute with her brother-in-law was arrested and jailed on Friday, according to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.

Rosa Olamendi, 63, of Bend, was jailed on charges of unlawful use of a weapon and menacing.

Deputies responded to the 2100 block of Obsidian Avenue on Bend’s east side shortly before noon.

Investigators learned Olamendi and other family members are involved in an ongoing dispute over road access and water rights at the property.

Olamendi’s brother-in-law, Craig Smith, 66, lives on an adjoining property, and Olamendi allegedly fired a single shot in the air as he was leaving the area.
