A Chicago woman surrendered to police this week, the day after she allegedly shot a woman in a violent crime broadcast live on Facebook.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, authorities say the 27-year-old victim was recording a Facebook Live video Tuesday afternoon in the Parkway Gardens neighborhood when she became involved in a verbal argument with a woman she knew who was sitting in a nearby vehicle.
“This b—h got a gun, y’all,” the woman is heard in the video saying of the suspect.
At one point in the video, the unidentified victim can be heard asking what the suspect was “going to do” with the firearm.
After the victim smacked the car and hurled a few more expletives in the other woman’s direction, shots allegedly rang out from within the vehicle, striking the victim in the arm.
The following day, 29-year-old Labritney Austin turned herself in to face charges of aggravated battery by discharging a firearm, according to the New York Daily News.
In a statement by Chicago police spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi, he confirmed investigators’ belief that the two women knew each other prior to the shooting.
He said the crime is being investigated as a “domestic-related incident between two individuals that know each other.”
Reports indicate Austin was scheduled to make an appearance in court for a bond hearing on Friday, according to the Chicago Tribune.
