A North Miami woman faces a charge of attempted murder after she shot a man with whom she shares an apartment, police said.
Shantel Brown, 24, who lives on the 13000 block of NE Sixth Ave in North Miami, was arguing with a man who lives with her around 2:15 p.m. Wednesday when she pulled out a gun and shot the man in the back.
The victim was in good condition at Ryder Trauma Center, according to police spokesman Maj. Neal Cuevas. Police did not release the victim’s name.
Brown remained in the apartment until police arrived. Officers charged her with attempted murder and other offenses and took her to Miami-Dade jail, where she is being held without bond.
Cuevas did not know what kind of relationship Brown has with the victim.
“It could be her boyfriend or husband,” he said.
It is also unclear what she and the victim were arguing about.
“I don’t know what they were arguing about,” Cuevas said. “All I know is that they were in the apartment and she shot him in the back.”
