A woman was arrested Sunday for assault with a deadly weapon, after allegedly shooting a man in the chest, according to Riverside County Sergeant Misty Reynolds.

Police arrested Andrea Auclair, 28, from Rancho Mirage. Auclair was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, discharging a firearm in a negligent manner and child endangerment. Child Protective Services arrived and took custody of two young children.

Depending on income eligibility guidelines, it would increase the amount of time a Reach Up recipient exiting the program can get state child care subsidies from one year to two. It also increases the amount of monthly income the state will disregard in calculating benefits.
