East Precinct detectives Thursday night charged Quindarius Jordan, 18, with aggravated assault and felony weapon possession for gunfire that struck a 62-year-old woman who was sitting outside 1103 Litton Avenue at 2:45 Thursday afternoon.
Marilyn Jenkins was hit in the hip. She is being treated at Skyline Medical Center.
Jordan is alleged to have been shooting at someone else when Jenkins was hit. After the gunfire, Jordan was reported to have fled in a silver Chevrolet Cobalt.
Officer Richard Conger was on the scene quickly and relayed information about the gunman and the getaway car to his East Precinct colleagues as he rendered aid to Jenkins. Officers Michael Wolterbeek and Robert Croteau spotted the Cobalt a short time later and stopped it in the 2800 block of Gallatin Avenue. The car was being driven by Quindarius Jordan’s twin brother, Quintarius Jordan. After the Jordans were removed from the car, the officers saw a pistol in plain view under Quindarius Jordan’s seat.
Quintarius Jordan was arrested for being an accessory after Marilyn Jenkins was shot.
In addition to shooting Jenkins, Quindarius Jordan is also charged with aggravated assault for the August 25th shooting of an 18-year-old acquaintance behind Litton’s Corner Market at 2830 Gallatin Pike. The victim was hospitalized with gunshot wounds to his left leg.
