Brenda Bailey, 46, was sentenced Monday morning in Wood County Circuit Court to four years of probation for her guilty plea to the charge of conspiracy to commit wanton endangerment involving a firearm.

Albert Chute, 21, and Chasity Gibson, 24, both of Parkersburg, were each arrested and charged with wanton endangerment with a firearm in the same case.

All three people were arrested on March 30, after Parkersburg Police say officers responded to reports of gunfire in the area of 7th Avenue and Parmaco St. in south Parkersburg.

The complaints says witness provided information on a suspect vehicle.
