A York City woman is charged with attempted homicide in connection with a shooting that left a man with a gunshot wound to his leg Saturday morning.

Bridgette Marie Samuel, 24, of the 300 block of West King Street is also charged with aggravated assault and reckless endangerment.

She is free on $100,000 bail, according to central booking.

According to her charging documents, Samuel initially denied knowing anything about the shooting, telling officers that gunshot victim Tristan Hughes, her boyfriend, "didn't need an ambulance and that he was fine."

Hughes, who was shot in the lower left leg, also told officers that he was fine and that he didn't need medical treatment. However, an officer was able to talk Hughes, 26, into going to York Hospital for treatment.

'Do me like that': City police officers were dispatched to the 300 block of West King Street just before 6 a.m. for a number of reports of shots fired. A caller also told a 911 dispatcher that a man was limping and appeared to have been shot.

Responding officers found a silver Nissan Versa, which belongs to Samuel's mother, with a broken back passenger window and a black semi-automatic pistol lying on the driver's side floor, according to charging documents.

Witnesses told officers that a woman and man had been arguing outside. The woman yelled "You gonna do me like that" before she went to the Nissan and returned with a gun and started firing at the man, documents state.

The woman got into the car and drove around the block before she parked the car and went inside her home, documents state.

Permit to carry: Samuel came out of the house and told a questioning officer that she has a gun and that it's under the seat in her car. She added that she has a permit to carry it, documents state.

She only told officers that Hughes was inside the house once she was placed in a police cruiser, documents state.

Officers found Hughes, who was trying to stop the gunshot wound from bleeding, inside the house. The officer persuaded Hughes to seek medical treatment after the officer raised concerns about the possibility of infection, documents state.
