Tarnelle Abraham Bio – Tarnelle Abraham Wiki
Tarnelle Abraham of North Dakota, charged with shooting a mother holding her 5-month-old baby earlier this month, was ordered held on a quarter-million dollar bond on Friday.
Tarnelle Abraham is 23 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
Tarnelle Abraham, 23, is charged with aggravated assault and reckless endangerment. Valley News Live reported that she was also given a no-contact order for the family of the woman she shot.
Court documents say Fargo police were called to a residence in south Fargo just before 10 p.m. on October 10 for a shooting. According to the documents, the residents were a married couple and their 5-month-old child.
Initially, the husband told police that two people pulled outside the apartment in a white Jeep Cherokee and got out. They began arguing, he said, and then shot at each other, with a bullet striking his wife through the window.
Valley News Live said that the wife remains hospitalized and cannot speak.
Court documents say the husband later told police a different story. He said that he had an affair earlier in the summer and that Abraham had recently contacted his wife to tell her about the experience. He said that on the night of the incident, he had gone to close the blinds and saw Abraham standing outside the window holding something in her hand. Court documents say they called 911, and the wife retrieved a handgun from the bedroom.
The husband took the gun, however, and went to put it away. The wife, carrying the baby, went to the window to see where Abraham was and was shot in the chest, and she dropped the infant. The husband said he ran out the patio door and fired at the suspect’s fleeing vehicle, striking it.
Security video from the apartment complex captured some of the incidents, showing a white Jeep Cherokee arriving and a Black woman getting out of the vehicle and walking toward the victims’ apartment.
Police located a vehicle that matched the description — including a bullet hole in the hood — the following day. The Jeep’s owner said Abraham had borrowed the car the previous night.
Abraham was arrested Friday morning and made her first court appearance later in the day, according to KVRR.
It was not clear if Abraham was the woman involved in the husband’s affair.
