SUMTER CO., GA (WALB) -

There was a fight and shooting over the weekend between two women in Sumter County.

Sheriff Pete Smith said that Rebecca Hancock and Kolbee Taylor got into a fight on the lake.

The sheriff said both women started spitting at each other and then Taylor fired a shot in Hancock's direction. 

The incident happened near a home on Tommy Warren Drive.

Luckily no one was injured.

The sheriff said that the incident could have been much worse. 

"When you've got heated arguments and stuff it's best to just walk away and not get involved in a confrontation. One girl spit on another girl and that set it off. She pulled out a .380 pistol and started firing," said Sumter County Sheriff Pete Smith.

According to deputies, both women were released from jail on Monday night.

Taylor is charged with aggravated assault and reckless conduct.

And Hancock is charged with simple assault and criminal trespass.
