Adair County prosecutors have charged a man with shooting at a woman and then bolting from sheriff’s deputies.

Ed Sevenstar, 38, was charged Monday with shooting with intent to kill, attempting to elude an officer, and carrying a firearm while under the influence of alcohol.

Prosecutors say Sevenstar, without justifiable cause, shot at Brenda Vann with a .22-caliber rifle, and then tried to evade Sheriff’s Deputy Lancer Reynolds. The third count alleges Sevenstar was under the influence of alcohol when he had the .22-caliber rifle.

Vann told Reynolds that her boyfriend, Sevenstar, had shot at her vehicle on Airport Road near Cherry Tree. She said the vehicle was struck three times by bullets from what she described as a .22-caliber rifle carried by Sevenstar.

Reynolds found two areas on the bed of Vann’s pickup where it had been shot, along with a bullet hole in the rear windshield that penetrated into the overhead lining inside the cab. A .22-caliber bullet was recovered from the vehicle.

Sevenstar ran to the Cherry Tree Housing Addition, where he was captured by Cherokee Nation Marshal Joe Rainwater.

Assistant District Attorney A.J. Garcia is prosecuting the case.
