Police: New Jersey man shot for using woman's snow shovel

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Police in New Jersey's largest city have arrested a woman who they say had a man shot for using her snow shovel.

Newark police say a man told them he found the shovel on the sidewalk on Sunday and was using it to clear an elderly neighbor's walkway after a major snowstorm when the woman accused him of stealing her shovel.

The man returned the shovel. He was later walking when he said he was approached by the woman and several males and one of the males shot him in the buttocks on orders from the woman.

Police have charged 36-year-old Saqirah Davis of Newark with aggravated assault, weapons counts and conspiracy. It's not known if she has a lawyer.

Officers are looking for other suspects.
