COLUMBIA — A 29-year-old resident of northeast Columbia was arrested on suspicion of firing two shots into his girlfriend's car while she was inside it.

Prinston M. Warren faces charges of armed criminal action and first-degree domestic assault. He was released from the Boone County Jail after posting $25,000 bond.

Columbia Police Department spokeswoman Jill Wieneke said in a news release that Warren's 28-year-old girlfriend confronted him at his home on Mohawk Avenue, in the Indian Hills subdivision. Wieneke said the girlfriend accused Warren of seeing another woman. During their argument, he fired multiple shots; one shattered the back glass and lodged in the rear seat of the car, while another damaged the roof.

Police found shell casings, and they seized a .40-caliber handgun as evidence, according to the release.

Wieneke said Warren's girlfriend was not injured.
