Woman says God told her to shoot at neighbors

MERRITT ISLAND - A Brevard County woman claiming to be God's messenger
has been charged with attempted murder after reportedly shooting at a
family on their back porch.


The sheriff's office reports that 47-year-old Kathleen Aceto showed up with a gun and began shooting Friday morning. A man in the house grabbed a gun and fired back, and
Aceto ran away.

Deputies responded and arrested Aceto, who lives a block from where the shooting occurred. She reportedly told the
deputies that God told her to do it.

Aceto was charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, armed burglary, shooting
into an occupied dwelling and the use of a firearm in the commission of
a felony.

She was being held without bail, and her mental health was being evaluated.
