An 18-year-old woman was charged with murder in connection to the deadly shooting of a Jamaican man outside a donut shop in Bronx, New York last month.
Santiana Rodriguez, who allegedly had accused 24-year-old Stephen Stuart of standing too close to her inside a Dunkin’ Donut shop, was charged with his murder on Monday.
Police are continuing their search for the woman’s boyfriend, who they believe carried out the shooting on Friday, March 18.
According to NBC New York, after Rodriguez allegedly accused Stuart of standing too close to her and “disrespecting her”, he and his friend left the donut shop.
Further reports are that the woman later called her boyfriend. He then tracked down Stuart, and shortly after, he shot the Jamaican after they briefly exchanged words.
Relatives said Stuart had moved to the Bronx three months prior from Jamaica.
He leaves behind his mother and two sisters in the island, and was working at a restaurant to support them up to the time of his death.
