36-year-old Shimara Josey was riding in a Nissan Altima with three other black females and a black male on Saturday, December 8th. The Nissan then pulled up next to another vehicle at a stop light and someone inside the vehicle asked the Nissan driver a question.
The Nissan driver then followed the victim to her house. The victim went inside to use the bathroom but her a loud banging noise and yelling outside. As she walked outside a black male standing near her car pointed a gun at her and said he was going to shoot her. The man then fired four shots in her direction before running away.
Detectives later determined that the Nissan belonged to Josey. Josey is now charged with two counts of attempted first degree murder. It is not clear at this time whether she remains in jail.
