An indictment handed down Thursday charges Robyn Johnson, 26, with the discharge of a firearm on or near prohibited premises, a first-degree felony; two counts of felonious assault, a second-degree felony; and improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle, a fourth-degree felony.
The charges carry firearm specifications of one-year and three years as well as a five-year drive-by shooting specification.
City police Detective Sgt. Anthony Vitullo said Johnson is accused of shooting a woman at about 3 a.m. April 22 at South Avenue and East Midlothian Boulevard.
Vitullo said the victim was in a car with a man and that car was followed from a bar by Johnson. All three people know each other, Vitullo said.
