A love triangle turns violent. Two twenty-something women fighting over the same guy. One pulls out a gun and starts shooting. But in this case the guy the women were fighting over is barely old enough to get a driver's permit.
The shooting happened the day after Valentine's Day at the Cypress Garden Apartments.
"We're starting to get cases on women just like anything else," said Lt. Nathan Berryman with the Memphis Police Dept. "It's not male exclusive crime anymore."
Police say 20-year-old Cherry Wright tried to kill her boyfriend's ex during a drive-by shooting. According to the report, she rolled up to 23-year-old Lakeviette Smith's apartment, pointed a gun out the window and started firing at her.The guy they're fighting over was behind the wheel. He's only 15 years old.
"He could be 15, he could be 20. You have conflict between people that doesn't de-escalate. It just keeps going and going," said Lt. Berryman.
And it doesn't end there. Fortunately Smith wasn't hit, but police say with all the gunfire Wright accidentally shot her teenage boyfriend in the neck.
He's charged with helping her gun down his ex, who also happens to be pregnant with his child. [source]
