NEW: Three women face attempted murder charges after Stuart shooting


A confrontation over a license tag led to a Christmas Eve shooting in Stuart that involved three Palm Beach County women, authorities said.

City police and Martin County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Christina Sabrina Davis, 41, Alana March, 23, and Petrianna Thomas, 21, after a man alleged he was targeted in a drive-by shooting Saturday evening outside his home on Southeast Tarpon Avenue.

All three are charged with attempted murder. March also is charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The man was not hurt, police said.

Davis and Thomas, both of West Palm Beach, remained in custody at the Martin County Jail on Tuesday in lieu of $500,000 bail. Thomas of Riviera Beach was being held in lieu of $500,000 bail.

According to an arrest report, the alleged victim told police he was standing outside with his truck at a church across the street from his home when a vehicle drove by and someone fired shots at him. The man ducked for cover, then ran to his house. He ran inside as the vehicle turned around and someone shot at him again, police said.

The vehicle then left the scene and the man followed as he reported the incident to police. Martin County deputies pulled over the suspect’s vehicle — a black four-door Chevrolet — at Pomeroy Street and Kanner Highway, about 5 miles northeast of Interstate 95.

According to an arrest report, March told investigators she had been dropped off in the East Stuart to retrieve a license plate from a truck. As she approached, the truck’s owner confronted her.

March said she handled the situation by “going off,” firing four to six shots. The report indicates Davis was the driver.

Davis told investigators she knew there was a gun in the vehicle but that she was not the one who fired shots. Thomas reportedly told investigators she was waiting in the car when she heard a shot fired. She told investigators that March got back into the vehicle and announced that she had fired shots at the truck’s window.
