WOMAN CHARGED WITH FIRING GUN INTO CAR OCCUPIED WITH 4 CHILDREN

No one was injured after police say a woman shot into a vehicle occupied by four young children Monday afternoon.

The Tuscaloosa Police Department said it happened in the 3500 block of Sixth Street around 2:30 p.m.

Homicide investigators said Anquetta Lewis, 20, and the other person were involved in an argument over the home being messy, which led to a fight.

Police said Lewis threatened to get a gun after she and the other woman separated, and the other woman grabbed her children and put them in her car so they could leave.

That woman, and several witnesses, said Lewis came back outside, told them to leave and fired a gun into the vehicle. That vehicle was occupied by four children, ages 3, 4, 5 and 6.

No one was injured from the gunfire, and Lewis was charged with discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle.

She’s being held in the Tuscaloosa County Jail pending a $15,000 bond, but police said other charges may be added later.

 

 

Lastly, the skeletal remains recovered last week on Ed Stephens Dr. were sent to the Alabama Dept. of Forensic Sciences on Wednesday and we expect it will take several weeks before any report is available.
