MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis police said a woman was charged after a fight at an area gas station led to a shooting inside an East Memphis home.

The suspect moved on when she realized she was at the wrong apartment.

The neighbor said she heard an altercation followed by gunshots several minutes later.
