MOUND HOUSE, Nev. (KOLO/Gray News) - A female employee at Moonlite Bunny Ranch in Nevada was arrested after a shooting at the brothel, KOLO reports.

Savannah Henderson, 28, was booked into Lyon County Jail and faces multiple charges, including multiple counts of possession of a firearm by a felon and discharge of a firearm where others may be endangered. Her bond was set at more than $86,000 ahead of an initial court appearance.

Authorities say they received a call Monday night about a fight between two co-workers at the legal brothel. When they arrived, they heard shooting and evacuated the business.

Investigators say that an employee had fired her gun and then barricaded herself in a room. She surrendered after several hours of negotiation and was taken into custody.

No one was hurt in the incident.
