The woman said Kolesar became angry when she arrived at the residence and fired the handgun at her and her family.

She and her children “fled in fear for our lives,” according to the report.

The woman also said she was concerned about the safety of the man because she heard more shots as she drove away.

Personnel from Mono County, California Highway Patrol and Douglas County responded to the woman’s 911 call.

Kolesar was jailed on $25,000 bail and is to appear Wednesday in East Fork Justice Court.
