The alleged incident happened in an apartment building on Forbes Avenue around 11 a.m. on July 9, and police spoke with witnesses after it had occurred.
Ja’Nija Allen, 23, was asked by her neighbor’s son for the Wi-Fi password, which led to a verbal argument between her and the neighbor.
Police say witnesses told them that at the time, Allen had a gun on her and had told the neighbor to “come down and fight her,” adding that when the neighbor shut their door to get their shoes, they heard a shot fired from outside the door.
The neighbor had allegedly opened the door to see Allen going back to her apartment, and at that point, they called 911.
While police had been en route, Allen left the apartment building and drove away in her car.READ MORE: State Police In Kittanning Searching For Arson Suspect Following Reported Domestic Incident
