Betty Frances Sanders fired a handgun Friday in the direction of the kids between the ages of 8 and 10 after complaining about the noise from their motorcycles, the Shasta County Sheriff's Department said.

Nobody was hurt. It wasn't immediately known if Sanders has an attorney.

The Redding Record Searchlight says the children's mother told deputies she argued with Sanders before the woman opened fire. The newspaper says the children were about 20 feet away when Sanders allegedly pulled the trigger.

Deputies recovered the gun.

Sanders could face charges including assault with a firearm and child endangerment. Her bail was set at $50,000.
