Woman accused of shooting man in face at Aster St. apartment
BATON ROUGE - A woman will face an attempted murder charge after she was accused of shooting a man in the head at an Aster Street apartment complex.
25-year-old Quinyana Jackson was booked on charges of attempted second degree murder and carrying of a firearm by a convicted felon after she was arrested early Monday morning.
Baton Rouge Police said officers were summoned at around 3 a.m. to an apartment in the 1000 block of Aster Street where they found a victim suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.
The victim told police that a girl he was trying to have sex with had shot him in the face. Witnesses at the scene said Jackson had been drinking with the victim, but when they went into her upstairs apartment, they heard the sound of a gunshot.
Witnesses said the victim came back downstairs, saying she had shot him. The victim was taken to an area hospital.
Jackson left the scene prior to the arrival of officers, but a search by police turned up a trail of blood coming from the suspect’s door and a .22 caliber handgun inside. She would be arrested later on Monday.
Jackson was previously convicted of armed robbery in 2008.
