A former Columbia woman arrested in connection with a 2006 shooting was being held Wednesday afternoon in the Boone County Jail.

Shelly Nicole Lewis, 20, was arrested June 14 by the Wyandotte County Sheriff’s Department in Kansas City, Kan., in connection with the Feb. 18, 2006, shooting of Daqual Wright.

About 1:30 a.m. that day, Boone County Sheriff’s deputies received a call from an alarm company about an alarm going off in a house on Brown Station Road, Sgt. Michael Stubbs said. When deputies arrived at the home, they were informed that the alarm had been shut off with an authorization code. Shortly after leaving the house, the owner of the house called the Sheriff’s Department and said a man who was later identified as Wright was in her house, Stubbs said.

Wright told police he had been shot three times, once in the face, and heard more shots fired. He was taken to University Hospital for treatment and was later released, Stubbs said.

Earlier that morning, Wright told police he had been traveling in a car with Lewis and two men. The men pointed handguns at him, and one hit him over the head with a gun after demanding his money. When he escaped from the car one of the men shot him, police said.

The two men had not been located by Wednesday afternoon. Lewis was charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree assault and two counts of armed criminal action in Boone County Circuit Court. She was being held in lieu of $200,000 bond at the Boone County Jail.

Anyone with information about the case should call CrimeStoppers, 875-8477.
