HOUSTON - Authorities say that a 30-year-old woman entered a Houston office and fired an arrow into a worker's chest, and that police later shot and wounded her.

Police say Julie Parker entered the Texas Components Corp. office Monday afternoon armed with a bow, arrows, and a toy gun, and fired an arrow into 55-year-old Armando Silva's chest.

Houston police spokesman John Cannon says two office workers then drew their own weapons and confronted Parker.

Police say officers shot Parker several times after she turned on them with the bow. Investigators have not determined a motive.

Parker was hospitalized in critical condition yesterday. She is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Silva was in hospitalized in good condition.
