Lorraine Manuel, 27, of the 7200 block of Grant Street, was in critical condition after the shooting on Culverton Court. Vivian Corely has been charged with aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, aggravated battery and criminal attempt to commit murder.

Corely called Emergency 911 at 3:40 p.m. to report that "she had shot someone in the rental house she owns off Beaumont Drive in southwest Chatham County," police say. "The shooting took place after a discussion between the two women."
