Chattanooga: New boyfriend shot; ex-boyfriend, William Jones, charged

A man turned himself in to police Sunday morning after he allegedly shot his ex-girlfriend’s new love interest, police said.

William Jones, 18, was charged with aggravated burglary, attempted murder and aggravated assault, Chattanooga Police Department spokeswoman Jerri Weary said in a news release.

Jones’ ex-girlfriend, Sharquela Porter, 19, told police that just after 3 a.m. Sunday morning, she heard a knock at her bedroom door at 262 W. 38th Street and recognized Jones’ voice, Weary said.

When Porter opened the door, Jones rushed in and shot Porter’s new beau, 23-year-old Cordarryle Moten, in the abdomen, Weary said. Porter drove Moten to to a hospital. His condition was unknown Sunday evening.

Porter told police that she and Jones broke up about a week ago and Jones returned his key to Porter’s apartment. She believes he made a copy, Weary said.

Sharquela? Sounds like some really cheap toilet paper.

Seriously? Sharquela? Every time I hear names like this and D'Brickashaw, LaDanlian, Tarvaris, Quineishia and the like I cannot help but wonder what in the world the names originally considered were.

Evidently William thought if he shot Cordarryle then Sharquela would want him back.

Do you reckon the simpleton thought he owned her?

Yeah, he's a simpleton. It takes $10 to own her.
