UPDATE: Victim in S. Monroe St. shooting was shot twice in the head
The shooting happened around 7:45 p.m. near the Save-A-Lot on South Monroe Street Wednesday night.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - A man is alert and communicating in the hospital after he was shot twice in the head Wednesday night on South Monroe Street, according to the Leon County Sheriff’s Office.
The arrest affidavit for the suspect, D’Sondra Ford, says she got in an argument with the man’s girlfriend before the shooting, which happened in a parking lot at 2525 South Monroe St. At one point, the girlfriend threw her sandal at Ford’s car, and Ford got out and started shooting at her, the affidavit says.
The woman took cover when she heard the gunshots, and she then realized her boyfriend, who was sitting in the passenger seat of a silver car, had been shot in the head. Ford left the scene in a black car, the affidavit says.
The sheriff’s office says it later arrested Ford and recovered the gun from the shooting. In an interview with a deputy, Ford said she argued with the woman because she used to be romantically involved with her boyfriend.
She also told the deputy she “snapped” after hearing a loud noise when the sandal hit her car.
The affidavit says there were multiple witnesses on the scene who all saw the woman throw something at Ford’s car, and Ford subsequently got out and opened fire with her handgun.
“Based on the physical evidence and witness statements, it is apparent [the woman] was the intended target of D’Sondra,” the affidavit says.
The sheriff’s office says Ford was charged with two counts of attempted homicide. She was taken to the Leon County Jail without incident.
