Police officials stated that a 54-year-old woman who said she was allegedly victimized told police officers that “she was in a minor, non-damage car crash” with a second woman.
The second woman allegedly said to the 54-year-old woman, “I’m gonna go get my man, you better go get yours,” and with that statement, both women left the scene. The second woman returned about half an hour later with Penn.
“Penn walked out of his car, walked into a home, and reappeared with a gun,” the police said. “Mr. Penn then start[ed] firing shots at the victim [the 54-year-old woman] and two other women with her. One round ricocheted and grazed the victim.”
The incident took place near the intersection of Liberty and Winchell Avenues, police said. Penn was caught about two miles away near the intersection of Warsaw Avenue and Wilder Avenue.
Based on court records, Penn has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault in connection with the incident which happened on Sept. 1st.
