I Saw Him First!

Two women in Chattanooga, Tenn., had their sights set on the same man, and apparently were willing to go to war over him. The shot across the bow occurred when one of the women, Leila Cross, 20, spat ice cream on the other’s car. She said that was in retaliation for Consuela McCrobey having thrown eggs at her house. “I should have thought twice about that situation,” McCrobey, 19, said. “I should have been at church, actually.” The feud escalated again when Cross drove by McCrobey’s house and allegedly opened fire on McCrobey’s car. That brought the police, who had to sort out what had happened. (JW/Chattanooga Free Times Press) ...The cops investigated the shooting the same way as the egg-throwing incident: by collecting the shell casings.
