Maricopa County Superior Court
A Glendale woman is accused of inviting her ex-boyfriend over to her house and then firing nine shots at him and a friend as they tried to flee, striking the friend’s car and a neighbor’s vehicle, according to police.
Maria Roxana Acosta Quintana, 23, was in a relationship with the man for about a year and recently broke up, a court document said.
A judge found probable cause to hold Quintana in a Maricopa County jail on suspicion of two counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of endangerment and two counts of criminal damage, among other charges. Quintana’s bond amount was set at $300,000.
Police say Quintana called her ex-boyfriend on Sunday and asked him to come to her home in the 4500 block of West Marlette Avenue. When he showed up with a friend, police say, Quintana exited the house to confront him and began shooting.
The ex’s friend got into his car and began driving away as the ex was running down the street. Neither man was hit, but five bullets had been fired into the vehicle, police said. At least one bullet was fired into a neighbor’s vehicle.
Neighbors told police they saw Quintana collecting shell casings from the ground before officers arrived. She eventually turned over the shell casings to police, according to court records.
Police said Quintana was on probation at the time of her arrest. Court records show an open traffic case out of Phoenix for driving without a license and making an unsafe lane change in January.
