BROOKLYN, N.Y. (PIX11) — Police arrested a man who allegedly shot an aspiring model in the head after an argument over a parking spot at a Home Depot in Brooklyn earlier this month, authorities announced on Tuesday.
Quincy Davis, 58, is facing murder and criminal possession of a weapon charges in connection with the shooting on Nostrand Avenue on Sept. 9, police said.
Davis allegedly fired several shots into a couple’s car while they tried to drive away. Imani Sharpless, 26, was shot in the head and her boyfriend was shot in the knee, according to police.
Sharpless died on Sept. 14. She was an aspiring model living in Brooklyn, sources told PIX11 News.
A friend of Sharpless called the shooting “senseless” and said the aspiring model had “so much to live for.”
“Always a bright spirit. Always had a smile on her face. It really is sad,” said Sharpless’ friend, who wished to remain anonymous.
