A woman has been arrested for firing a gun during an argument with a homeless man.

According to the Santa Monica Police Department, charges have been filed against Tarra Kenay Sheffield, a 27, for her involvement in the shooting. 

SMPD said the incident began on May 17 at about 12:30 p.m. in an alley on the 2400 block of Ocean Park Blvd.

“The victim was in the alleyway pushing a stroller filled with personal property, when a vehicle drove past him. That vehicle suddenly reversed and hit the victim’s stroller causing all the items to fall out and scatter onto the ground. The driver of the vehicle, later identified as Sheffield, got out of the car, and walked to the victim, while he (victim) was gathering his belongings. Sheffield said a few words to the victim, as she produced a handgun and fired one round to the ground in close proximity to the victim. Sheffield then got back into her car and quickly drove away,” said SMPD Spokesman Rudy Flores.

Sheffield was located the next day on the 600 block of Wilshire Blvd and arrested without incident. Detectives located a loaded 9mm handgun, with no make or model, inside of the vehicle. 

According to Flores, the Los Angeles County’s District Attorney’s Office charged Sheffield with assault with a firearm, assault with a semi-automatic firearm and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
