NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Metro police said a woman shot last Sunday night in a drive-by shooting may have been specifically targeted in an act of retaliation.

Dameisha Clark, 20, is wanted on charges of criminal homicide in the May 14 shooting death of 21-year-old Johnny Broadnax.

Broadnax was found lying in the grass near an SUV that had crashed into the Hickory Manor Apartments on Hamilton Church Road in Antioch.

Police say their investigation found Clark contacted Broadnax to arrange a drug deal and was behind the wheel of a stolen Dodge Charger from which shots were fired that night.

Clark is thought to have been in the Charger with at least one other person, according to officials.

A little over a week later, Clark was one of four injured in a drive-by shooting near the Nashville Speedway in South Nashville—and now police believe she was targeted.

Metro-Nashville police said she was in the front passenger seat of a Nissan Sentra when two people inside a small black sedan with custom wheels opened fire.

Clark and the driver, Kayla Blakely, received non-critical wounds. Both were treated at the hospital and release.
