A 38-year-old woman who allegedly shot two people in a domestic dispute in Darwin's rural area has been remanded in custody.

The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been charged with more than a dozen offences, including attempted murder, deprivation of liberty and the abduction of a child.

Police allege she shot her 43-year-old ex-partner in the hand, and shot his 63-year-old mother in the arm and chest, after a car chase in the rural area on Tuesday.

It is also alleged she had picked up a six-year-old from a Humpty Doo school, contravening a Family Court order.

The woman was remanded in custody for a possible bail application next week.

About 10 family members were in the Darwin Magistrates Court court to support her today, and she smiled at the group as she was taken back to the cells.

The three people injured during the incident have been interviewed by police at Royal Darwin Hospital.
