Three days ago, a Facebook Live stream went viral after the woman recording captured herself getting shot once in the arm during an altercation. Reports now say the alleged shooter turned herself into police two hours after the incident and now faces charges.

29-year-old Labritney Austin handed herself over to authorities in Chicago at approximately 4:45 pm on Wednesday, just two hours after the now-viral shooting took place.

Around 2:55 pm, Austin got into an argument with the 27-year-old woman in the Parkway Gardens neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side. Things quickly escalated and Austin is suspected of firing a weapon at the woman once, striking her in the shoulder, police say.

Austin now faces one charge of aggravated battery by discharging a firearm. She was due to appear in bond court Friday.
