A woman has been arrested and charged with criminal homicide stemming from a fatal shooting in May.

Authorities confirmed they took 20-year-old Dameisha Tashae Clark into custody. She was booked into Metro Jail around 8:30 a.m. Sunday.

Officials with the Metro Nashville Police Department said Clark’s arrest stemmed from the fatal shooting of 21-year-old Johnny Broadnax on May 14.

Broadnax was killed at the Hickory Manor Apartments on Hamilton Church Road in South Nashville.

Investigators said Clark allegedly shot Broadnax at the apartment complex from inside a stolen Dodge Charger during a drug deal.

Officers found him lying near a 2002 GMC Envoy which had hit one of the apartment buildings.

Officials believed Broadnax was shot near the management office and had tried to get away in the SUV just before the crash. He was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he passed away.

Clark was thought to have been in the Charger with at least one other person.

Not long after Broadnax was killed, police said Clark was injured in a shooting on Rains Avenue on May 22. Three other people inside a red Nissan Sentra with Clark were also injured.

Witnesses told police a black sedan with custom rims came up beside the Sentra, and someone inside opened fire with a rifle.

Two of the four victims were in critical condition. They were all taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Of those injured, the driver of the Sentra was identified as 25-year-old Kayla Blakely and the front seat passenger was Clark.

The two passengers in the back of the car were identified as 32-year-old Michael Shaw and 25-year-old Michael Myers, Jr.

Police said they believe the shooting on Rains Avenue was in retaliation to the death of Broadnax days before.

Clark was booked into jail on a $500,000 bond. She was awaiting a court date.
