BULLHEAD CITY – Bullhead City police are looking for two people who allegedly engaged in a violent vehicular pursuit over the weekend.

Agency spokeswoman Emily Fromelt said police officers responded at 7:45 p.m. on Saturday to a report that two armed people fired shots at a vehicle in the area of Lakeside Drive and Baseline Road.

Fromelt said it was learned that Kristen Renee Schmitt, 30, of Golden Valley, and 44-year-old Bullhead City resident James Francis Marlowe were in a blue Cadillac while allegedly chasing another man and woman in another vehicle throughout the city.

“After firing shots at the victim's vehicle, Schmitt reportedly smashed the victim's window with a club and continued to strike the vehicle, hitting the male driver's arm," Fromelt said. She said the pair was able to drive to the police station and they were not seriously injured.

Fromelt did not disclose a motive for the violence, but indicated that the women had been friends with at least one of the victims. Arrest warrants for aggravated assault with a weapon were issued for Schmitt and Marlowe.
