Court documents say the shooting stemmed from an argument between Gillard and her neighbor. According to Memphis Police, the neighbor ran inside the apartment, grabbed a gun, and then fired a “warning shot” from their back porch.

Police say the neighbor, who was later identified as Eleesha Tolbert, ran back to the front of her apartment and continued arguing with Gillard who at this point was angry with Tolbert for firing a gun with children nearby.

According to that witness, Gillard allegedly ran toward Tolbert, causing Tolbert to shoot Gillard.

Tolbert is charged with voluntary manslaughter, reckless endangerment, and employment of a firearm during a dangerous felony. Her first court date is Wednesday morning.
