BR woman charged in murder attempt
A Baton Rouge woman surrendered to police on Friday for allegedly shooting at a man during a dispute at her apartment, according to an affidavit of probable cause prepared by the Police Department.
No one was injured in the incident, according to the affidavit.
Janice Lee, 25, got into an argument with a man at her apartment on 2136 N. Lobdell Blvd., the affidavit says.
Lee was armed with a handgun during the argument, the affidavit says.
The man locked himself in a bedroom and hid in the closet, the affidavit says, and Lee fired two shots at the closet door.
