A 22 year old woman is facing two charges of felony first-degree attempted homicide with the use of a dangerous weapon charges after three people were shot on the 2100 block of High Ridge Trail just before noon Sunday, Sept. 29.
The woman, Shaquita Lee, of Fitchburg, shot a 21 year old woman, who sustained life-threatening injuries, and a 49 year old woman, who later arrived at a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
