Two suspects face attempted murder charges after a shooting over a Wal-Mart parking space in Tallahassee.
Police say a disagreement over the parking space led to the shooting outside the store on Black Friday.
Earl White III and Tiffany Yancey face charges of attempted robbery with a firearm, attempted murder and possession of firearm by a convicted felon in connection with the store shooting.
Police said Yancey pointed a gun at a female, demanding “everything in your purse.” Police say White then shot the woman and a male passenger outside the store. According to a report in the Tallahassee Democrat, the two victims received non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.
The suspects fled, but were soon spotted south of Cairo, Ga. on Highway 111. Police pursued the suspects in a chase that reached speeds of 90 miles per hour. Police used spike strips, to slow the vehicle and sent it crashing into a guard rail, according to the Democrat.
The couple will be charged after being extradited to Florida, according to police.
