A Tennessee woman is accused of killing a Memphis pastor and injuring his wife in a shooting.

, officers responded to a Collierville apartment on April 4 after getting calls from residents about gunshots and screaming.

Upon arrival, they found Brodes Perry, executive pastor at Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church, and his wife suffering from gunshot wounds.

Police said the shooter, Latoshia Daniels, was armed and wouldn't put down her weapon. Daniels was eventually taken into custody.

Perry's wife told investigators that Daniels showed up at the home unexpectedly on the night of the shooting. She let Daniels in because the two knew each other.

She told officials that she was taking Daniels back out when Daniels pulled out a handgun and started shooting and screaming, "You broke my heart," at Perry.

The two victims were transported to an area hospital where Perry later died. Police said, while at the hospital, Daniels attacked an officer before trying to run.

Daniels was charged with first degree murder, attempted first degree murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, assault on a police officer and resisting arrest.
