TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- A woman is behind bars in Leon County, accused of firing shots from her car before sideswiping another vehicle and then crashing into a local barbershop.
On October 25, officers with the Tallahassee Police Department responded to the In and Out Barbershop in the 1400 block of Disston Street after a car crashed into the building.

Officers helped the driver of the car, 38-year-old Tina Kibler, get out of the vehicle. First responders said she was bleeding from her left arm, and appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
While authorities were questioning Kibler, they discovered she had been involved in a hit-and-run accident just moments before crashing into the barbershop.
The driver of the other car said he was traveling east on Floral Street, approaching Perry Street, when he saw Kibler's vehicle driving in the wrong direction towards him. He also reported hearing gunshots and seeing gunfire coming from the suspect's car.
The victim said Kibler suddenly veered into the other lane, striking the front left fender of his car. The victim told investigators the suspect continued driving westbound on Floral Street and then turned north.
According to arrest documents, investigators found gun shell casings at the site of the hit and run that matched casings found in Kibler's car.
Kibler was taken into custody on Monday. She has been charged with leaving the scene of a crash involving damage, firing a weapon from a vehicle and carrying a concealed firearm without a permit.
