A Las Vegas woman suspected of DWI is facing several charges after police located three adults and a 15-year-old girl parked in a car at Lincoln Park. During an investigation, police located a bottle of whiskey and a firearm, according to court documents.

Adia L. Salas, 21, was arrested Saturday evening and booked into the San Miguel County Detention Center early Sunday, charged with a felony count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, along with misdemeanor charges for DWI, negligent use of a deadly weapon and having an open container of alcohol.

Officers with the Las Vegas Police Department were initially responding to a confusing call from someone reporting gunshots. The initial call stated shots were heard in the area of Third Street and Lincoln Avenue, two roads that do not intersect.

One officer patrolled the area around Third Street and Washington Street, but did not locate any suspicious activity. Other officers patrolled the neighborhoods along Lincoln Avenue, further south. Those officers located a white car parked at Lincoln Park.
