A woman accused of shooting a homeless man in Nashville was indicted by a grand jury.

The incident happened last August on Music Row. 

According to police, after a heated argument about her car's exhaust fumes and loud music, 27-year-old Katie Quackenbush got out of her Porsche and shot Gerald Melton

During a preliminary hearing, testimony revealed Quackenbush asked the 57-year old if he "wanted to die tonight" before pulling the trigger. 

Attorneys for Quackenbush said she was acting in self defense.
