A Lethbridge woman charged in relation to a shooting incident on the westside in October hopes to be released from custody when she returns to court next week.

Kristylyn Nicole Healy, who remains in custody at the Lethbridge Correctional Centre, made a brief appearance Monday in provincial court, where an agent for her lawyer requested the matter be adjourned to Monday for a bail hearing. Court was told last week the Crown is opposed to Healy’s release.

Healy, 32, is charged with assault with a weapon, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, possession of stolen property over $5,000, and two counts of failure to comply with a probation order. She is accused with Jarret Bruce Healy, 29, who faces numerous criminal charges, including possession of unauthorized firearm, pointing a firearm, careless use of a firearm and discharging a firearm with intent to endanger life. His next court appearance is set for next Thursday, when he is also expected to have a bail hearing.

Shortly before 8 a.m. Oct. 21 Lethbridge police responded to a report of gunshots in the 400 block Columbia Boulevard West. Police said in a news release the following day they spoke with a 30-year-old man who said he was behind the residence near the alley and was confronted by a man in a white GMC Yukon. The man in the Yukon pointed a firearm at the victim, who fled down the alley. The complainant heard a gunshot and the vehicle sped away.

Police reported they found the vehicle parked in The Bay parking lot and two women and one man were arrested in the area after leaving the vehicle. During a search of the vehicle, which had been stolen, police found a handgun.

Investigators determined a second man had been dropped off at a home on the northside and he was arrested a short time later after he was seen leaving the residence with a bag and getting into a vehicle. When he was arrested and the bag searched police found a firearm and ammunition which matched a bullet casing that had been recovered at the westside residence.

Shots had also been fired at a home on Dalhousie Court West, police said, and two bullet casings were recovered. Police also believe that after leaving the westside, the Yukon drove to the northside where more shots were fired.

In addition to his charges relating to the shootings, Jarret Healy has also been charged with aggravated assault for an unrelated incident Sept. 11 when a 31-year-old man was found unconscious at the intersection of Mildred Dobbs Boulevard and Lettice Perry Road North.
