Woman, juvenile girl accused of shooting at Maryville man
From Staff Reports
Authorities have charged two females in connection with a shooting reported early this morning at a Maryville residence.
Latrice Javon Booker, 20, Bishop Street, Alcoa, was charged with aggravated assault in connection with the incident. Bond and court dates have not yet been set.
A 17-year-old Maryville girl was also arrested and charged with delinquency by aggravated assault.
Maryville Police officers responded to a Carlton Court residence at 1:44 a.m. after a 26-year-old man reported that he was shot at while inside the home. The man told police he was sitting at his desk in his bedroom when a bullet traveled by his face and struck the wall, according to the Maryville Police report.
The man then jumped from the chair onto the floor, where he felt glass strike him as another bullet came into the home. While the man said he never saw the vehicle or suspects, two people who were inside a vehicle parked in the driveway at the time of the incident gave officers a description of the vehicle.
Maryville Police Chief Tony Crisp said a be-on-the-lookout was issued for the vehicle and that a Maryville Police officer stopped the vehicle on Bishop Street.
Booker and the juvenile were found inside the vehicle and were taken into custody.
Crisp said two men have been identified as persons of interest in the case and that a warrant for aggravated assault has been issued for the arrest of one of those men. Neither had been located as of Tuesday evening.
