Before gunshots rang out, 30-year-old Amelia Leaster reportedly took a 12-year-old girl to fight a 10-year-old girl in the 2100 block of Kirby Avenue on May 29.

Shortly after the fight was over between the girls, witnesses told Chattanooga police that Leaster handed a loaded gun to 19-year-old Juwan Reynolds. He began to open fire, according to an affidavit of complaint.

Joshua Fleetwood, 34, was shot and wounded in the left shin. His niece was the 10-year-old girl involved in the fight.
