JAMESTOWN — A Jamestown woman involved in a shooting was arrested Wednesday morning, March 1, in northeast Jamestown, according to Scott Edinger, chief of police for the Jamestown Police Department.

Terryl Wynn Getz, 64, was arrested on suspicion of reckless endangerment, a Class C felony, Edinger said.

Edinger said the Jamestown Police Department responded to a report of a shooting shortly after 5:30 a.m. Wednesday in the 900 block of 4th Avenue Northeast in Jamestown. On arrival, officers came into contact with a man who had a gunshot wound to the arm, Edinger said.

The log of calls from the Stutsman County Communications Center shows a call was received at 5:35 a.m. Wednesday. The call log, which was classified as “reckless endangerment,” said two rounds were spent.


“Caller stated she said she shot 2 rounds, one in the ceiling and the other hit the male in the arm,” the call log said.

A Jamestown man was transported by Jamestown Area Ambulance to Jamestown Regional Medical Center with the help of the city of Jamestown's maintenance crews and snow-removal equipment. Edinger said the man, who was not identified citing Marsy’s Law, did not have life-threatening injuries.

Edinger said he couldn’t release any more information about the incident because the man has not been interviewed yet. He said additional charges are possible.

The Jamestown Police Department is investigating the incident.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
