NEW BRIGHTON, Staten Island — The identity of a woman sought in connection to the shooting of a mother and her son as they drove to Christmas dinner was released by police Tuesday.
Nadia Williams, 30, is sought in the Christmas night shooting in New Brighton, police said.
Monique Hall, 42, and her 19-year-old son were returning home with food for the holiday dinner when police said a black SUV pulled alongside their Nissan Sentra and two people opened fire, spraying their vehicle with bullets.
Hall, a minister at the First Central Baptist Church in Staten Island, was grazed by a bullet to her lower back. Her son had a bullet lodged behind his esophagus.
The teen was hospitalized, and his mother treated and released.
Police have not said if the pair were the intended targets, but Hall’s husband, Irving Hall, said immediately after the shooting he did not believe they were.
Williams is described as a 30-year-old woman, standing 5 feet tall, weighing 110 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair.
She also goes by the name Jessica Giles, police said.
