Ky. woman indicted in shooting death

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Louisville woman has been charged with
murder for the shooting death of another woman while police were
investigating a pair of deaths up the street.
A Jefferson County grand jury on Thursday indicted 24-year-old
Cheetara Goldsmith. The charge stems from the May 17 shooting death
of Makeba Lee in the Parkland neighborhood.
The grand jury also charged Goldsmith with first-degree wanton
endangerment stemming from the incident.
Police said Goldsmith shot Lee as police investigated a triple
shooting yards away involving 24-year-old Tyson Mimms and
22-year-old Craig "C.J." Bland Jr. Both men died in the shooting,
which remains under investigation.
Mimms is the father of Lee's child.
Police say an officer shot Goldsmith after turned the gun on the
officer.
