A woman has been charged with attempted murder in the shooting of a homeless man in Nashville after he had asked her to move her Porsche.
News outlets report 26-year-old Katie Quackenbush was charged Monday night in the Aug. 26 shooting of 54-year-old Gerald Melton.
Melton was disturbed by exhaust fumes and loud music coming from Quackenbush’s Porsche SUV while trying to sleep at 3 a.m., and asked her to move the vehicle. The two began yelling at each other and Quackenbush exited the vehicle and shot Melton twice before running up the street with another woman.
Melton remains hospitalized with critical injuries.
