Parking dispute leads to attempted murder charge


News Staff Writer

A local woman was arrested September 21 and charged with attempted murder after a dispute over a parking spot at a local apartment complex escalated into a shooting incident.
APD reports show that the suspect, 37-year-old Brandie Webb Patterson of Atmore, began arguing with a neighbor and several of the neighbor’s friends around 3:15 p.m., in the 200 block of Patterson Street, in reference to parking.
Patterson reportedly ran into her apartment and retrieved her handgun, then ran back outside and fired several times at the victims.
The suspect then went into her apartment and was taken into custody there. Officers recovered a 9 mm semi-automatic handgun that Patterson used. The victims were not injured.
The local woman is charged with two counts of attempted murder. She remained in the Escambia County Detention Center Tuesday morning, September 27, without bond.
