Alana Savell was arrested after shooting at her house guests who were "getting too loud," deputies say.

PANAMA CITY, Fla. – A Florida woman was arrested Monday after she opened fire on her house guests, whom she believed had overstayed their welcome, deputies said.

Alana Savell, 32, was booked into a panhandle jail on a charge of aggravated battery with a firearm.

According to a news release from the Bay County Sheriff's Office, Savell pulled out a .22 caliber handgun and started shooting at a woman and a man who were visiting.

Savell told deputies that the woman and her friend had come over to hang out, began drinking and were "getting too loud." Savell said she didn't want them in her house anymore, so she started shooting at their feet.

Investigators said Savell's boyfriend told them he has instructed her that "once someone is told to leave their property three times, she is to go get the gun and shoot it at the ground. If that does not work, she is to shoot people in the leg."

The woman was taken to a Panama City-area hospital to be treated for a gunshot wound.

Police said Savell's boyfriend was also shot in the leg.
