MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A security guard faces charges of attempted murder and more after police said she fired a shot at a woman who was picking up a paycheck.
40-year-old Quintrease Rhodes is charged with attempted first degree murder, reckless endangerment, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony.
According to the police affidavit, the victim had gone to her former place of employment just before 2:00 p.m. Friday, Estes Express Line on Shelby Drive, to pick up her paycheck.
Investigators said Rhodes, who was working as a security guard, told the woman the check would be mailed, and the woman “chest bumped” Rhodes. According to the affidavit, Rhodes then pulled out her on-duty weapons and fired a shot at the woman.
Investigators said the woman was taken to the hospital with hearing damage only.
According to the report, under questioning Rhodes admitted to firing a shot at the woman “in self-defense.”
Bond has not been set and Rhodes is due in court Monday.
