Lawyer’s daughter, driving a Porsche? I’m gonna go with the homeless guy’s version:
The Tennessean reports that 54-year-old homeless man Gerald Melton was critically injured this week when he was shot twice by Katie Quackenbush, who was driving a Porsche SUV near the area where he was trying to sleep.
Police say Melton asked Quackenbush to move the SUV because its exhaust fumes and loud music were impairing his ability to sleep. The two then got into a loud argument with each other, and then Quackenbush allegedly exited the vehicle holding a gun that she then used to shoot Melton twice, leaving him with a wounded abdomen.
Police say Quackenbush then got back into her car and fled the scene.
Quackenbush’s father, Texas attorney Jesse Quackenbush, defended his daughter after her arrest by claiming that the homeless man was threatening to kill her shortly before she decided to get out of the car and fire her weapon at him.
