A North St. Paul woman who allegedly shot her daughter in the leg while the two argued early Sunday remained on the run Monday, police said.

A pickup-and-hold has been issued for Tonya Hale Raleigh, 35, after the 4:40 a.m. shooting at an apartment in the 2300 block of 11th Avenue S. in North St. Paul.

The incident led police to deploy a SWAT team and to evacuate the area for several hours.

North St. Paul Police Capt. Dustin Nikituk said Monday that he did not know the nature of the argument, but that it was “fueled by alcohol” and it was fortunate the incident did not turn deadly.

“It sounds like there was just a lot of drinking going on,” Nikituk said.

The alleged victim, Aleesea Anderson, 18, suffered noncritical injuries.

State court records show that Raleigh has prior convictions for theft and drug offenses.
