Homeless man asked woman to move Porsche so he could sleep. Then she shot him, police say.

Source: MSN/Washington Post

Around 3 a.m. one Saturday morning last month, Gerald Melton was trying to sleep — as he often did — on a sidewalk near Nashville’s Music Row, known as the heart of the city’s entertainment industry.

But the 54-year-old homeless man was “disturbed” by the smell of exhaust fumes and the sound of loud music emanating from a white Porsche SUV nearby, Nashville metro police said in a news release. He asked the driver to move the Porsche, prompting a shouting match between the two. At some point, Melton walked back to the area where he had been trying to sleep, he told police.

Then, the driver, a 26-year-old woman named Katie Quackenbush, allegedly stepped out of the Porsche and fired two gunshots at Melton, hitting him in the stomach, police said. She then got back in her SUV and fled the area.

On Monday, Quackenbush, an aspiring singer and songwriter, was charged with attempted murder in connection with the Aug. 26 shooting. She was booked into jail and released after posting a $25,000 bond. Melton was critically wounded and remains hospitalized at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, police said.

1. This woman is a POS

But what is really interesting is when you look at the Washington Post Article there are links to her music video and a you tube of him singing and playing the guitar. The homeless guy she shot is so much more talented then her auto-tuned ass can ever hope to be.

She just has a rich daddy who can spend money on her.

So (at least for Katie Quackenbush) could the homeless gentleman she shot in the gut,

8. Wouldn't it be ironic ...

if he recovers, she goes to jail and he becomes a star? It reminds me of the story of the Chinese Farmer
