Woman charged in shootout

Mar. 05, 2013 @ 11:30 PM

HUNTINGTON -- A shooting suspect's ex-girlfriend and would-be victim has been charged in relation to the same incident, according to court documents.

Chrysilla Rose Gundy, 19, was arraigned Friday on a felony charge of aiding and abetting.

A criminal complaint states Gundy was operating a Jeep Cherokee with another man as her passenger Feb. 27 in the 1000 block of 20th Street.

That's when the two became involved in a shootout with Gundy's ex-boyfriend, Lavonta Dejuan Burrell. The complaint states Gundy stopped the vehicle to allow her passenger to exit and return fire. Gundy then drove away and dropped off her passenger as police arrived on scene.

Police charged Burrell with attempted murder, threats of terrorist acts and wanton endangerment, according to criminal complaints. The documents allege Burrell fired shots at the vehicle as it traveled north. The victim told police Burrell called her cellphone earlier that day before texting her a photo of a bullet, which he said "had her name on it," according to one of the complaints.

The incident about 4:15 p.m. during rush-hour traffic. Criminal complaints cite area surveillance cameras showing the shooting forced occupants in six nearby vehicles to evade gunfire.
