According to authorities, Tiffany Burkett discharged the rounds from a stolen .38-caliber revolver while pursuing the man from New Street. Police were initially called to the parking lot of the Queen’s Manor apartment complex at approximately 11:16 a.m. as the incident unfolded.

She was committed to Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution on $34,000 secured bond.
