JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- An arrest has been made in the death of a woman who was shot in the driver's seat of her vehicle while stopped at a traffic light.
Juanita "Boobie" Jordan, 20, has been charged with murder/non-negligent homicide after an investigation by the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office found that she shot and killed Marvette Littles, 26. Police said Jordan fired a shot at Littles's vehicle on the evening of June 11 near the 900 block of University Boulevard.
Jordan was seen pulling a handgun from her waist and shooting once into the vehicle by witnesses. Prior to the shooting, Jordan was captured on camera by surveillance cameras at the BP gas station at 921 University Boulevard, according to a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office report.
The surveillance photos of Jordan were released to the media, and JSO received three Crime Stoppers tips that it was indeed Jordan.
Jordan was called in for questioning by police on Thursday. At first, she claimed the shooting was in self-defense.
However, Littles' boyfriend, who was in the vehicle with her at the time, along with their infant child, said they had no interaction or relationship with Jordan at all, according to Chief Tom Hackney with JSO.
After the self-defense claim was dispelled, Jordan didn't really give a clear motive for shooting at Littles' car, Hackney said.
