A Nashville woman is accused of shooting a homeless man who asked her to move her Porsche SUV.
Katie Quackenbush, 26, is charged with attempted murder, according to The Tennessean.
According to the Metro Nashville Police, Quackenbush critically wounded 54-year-old Gerald Melton on Aug. 26. He remains in the hospital.
Police say Melton was trying to sleep on a sidewalk around 3 a.m. when the exhaust fumes and loud music from Quackenbush's SUV disturbed him.
When he asked the young woman to move the vehicle, an argument ensued and Quackenbush got out of the SUV with a weapon.
Police say she shot the man twice and fled the scene.
Jesse Quackenbush, Katie's father, has a different account of what happened.
He told the Tennessean that his daughter and her friend were being accosted by Melton, claiming the man made explicit and sexist remarks toward the two. He also claimed Melton threatened to kill the women.
According to the father, Quackenbush then grabbed her gun and got out of her SUV to escort her friend to her vehicle.
Melton allegedly began walking toward the woman, Jesse said, when his daughter told him she had a gun and fired two warning shots.
He claims she had no idea Melton had been hit by the gunfire.
Quackenbush's bond was set at $25,000. She is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 6.
