Mancia was arrested in connection with a March shooting in Rogers, according to court documents.

Rogers police responded at 12:12 a.m. March 16 to 1024 W. Hendrix St. and found several spent .45-caliber shell casings in the middle of the street, according to a probable cause affidavit.

The house had been hit by multiple rounds from a firearm, the affidavit states.

At least four people, including a 7-year-old girl, were in the home at the time of the shooting.

Three others have been charged in the incident.

Rogers police obtained videos of a blue Honda Civic in the area during the shooting. Detectives saw a blue Honda Civic in the area on the same day of the incident, and spoke with Mancia, who was the driver; she told police she was in the area during the time of the shooting, the affidavit states.
