DAUPHIN COUNTY, Pa. (WHTM)– A woman was arrested for attempted homicide after allegedly shooting a man Wednesday in Dauphin County over a payment dispute.
Pennsylvania State Police say Kaay Chanel, 23, of Tennessee was invited to partake in “illicit activities” with the man at his home and asked for $2,000.
Chanel allegedly shot the man in the chest after he didn’t pay her. After he was shot, State Police say he ran to a neighbor’s house and called 911.
The victim was taken to Hershey Medical Center and is expected to survive. Troopers interviewed him, and he claimed that he paid her $300 and then she left. When she got back she demanded the money and then pulled out a handgun saying that she would kill him if she didn’t get it, according to the criminal complaint.
When the man showed her that he didn’t have the money she shot him in the chest, he claimed to Troopers in his interview, the complaint states.
While they were on the way to the scene, Troopers saw Chanel’s vehicle and a pursuit began after attempting to to pull her over.
A Trooper was almost hit during the pursuit that lasted for 35 miles and saw Chanel driving a grey Hyundai Sonata and hit speeds of up to 140 mph and ended in a “park and ride” lot along Lebanon Road in Lancaster County. Chanel was taken into custody after a foot chase and a gun was recovered.
According to State Police, Chanel admitted she left her four-year-old son alone in a hotel room. The child was located and turned over to Children Youth Services.
Chanel faces charges of attempted homicide, robbery, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and other related ones.
