MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A woman has been charged with multiple counts after officers said she shot into a residence with children inside.
The victim said she and her three children were inside their home on May 2 when Johari Jenkins fired shots into the residence. According to police, the children said Jenkins, 23, shot into the home and said, “I hope I hit one of them little (expletive).”
Jenkins then walked to the second floor and fired more shots into the living room.
Court documents said a witness in another apartment heard Jenkins said “Since I already got a charge on me, I might as well get another one today by killing you and your kids (expletive).”
According to the affidavit, a third witness said she was inside her apartment and saw Jenkins shooting inside the second floor window of the victim’s home. The witness said she heard Jenkins say, “I hope I hit one of your kids, and I’m going to kill you next (expletive).”
The witness also said Jenkins threw a glass bottle at the victim’s front windshield of her car and kicked out the back window.
Jenkins was charged with four counts of aggravated assault, three counts of attempted first-degree murder, reckless endangerment, employment of a firearm and vandalism.
She is expected to appear in court on June 6.
