SALISBURY — Rowan authorities say they’ve added attempted murder charges for a Salisbury woman arrested in March 2017 with shooting at an ex-boyfriend from a car and taking law enforcement on a 100-mph chase.

Teresa Christina White, 40, of Sells Road, has been in the Rowan County jail since her March 31, 2017 arrest. She was additionally charged this weekend and is jailed under a $600,000 secured bond. White was charged in 2017 with discharging a firearm into an occupied property, assault with a deadly with intent to kill, and possession of a stolen firearm.

According to Rowan County authorities, White and Steven Michael Jones Sr. were in a vehicle following Keith Tyrone Reid, who had left work just before 11 p.m. on Statesville Boulevard.

Reid told law enforcement that he noticed as he drove down Statesville Boulevard the vehicle behind him slowed when he slowed. The vehicle followed Reid onto West Innes Street near Walgreen’s when an occupant began shooting at Reid. He initially did not know who was pursuing him, Reid told deputies at the time.

Off-duty deputies confirmed they heard three to four gunshots coming from the Statesville Boulevard-West Innes Street area.

Reid said he lives on Brenner Avenue and turned toward home from work but detoured onto Fairson Avenue when he realized a vehicle was following him. He then drove onto West Innes Street and Mahaley Avenue, where he pulled into the Food Lion parking lot. He told deputies the vehicle continued moving and he once again drove toward West Innes Street. The vehicle reappeared, and Reid headed toward Catawba College.

Reid was at Hogan’s Valley Way on U.S. 601 when he heard shots being fired, he told deputies. He realized his vehicle was hit when he heard the wind coming through a hole in the windshield. He called 911. The vehicle pursuing him either tried to pass him or pull alongside him, Reid said, but he accelerated to get away. He drove until he got to the Davie County line, where deputies and Mocksville police officers were waiting.

Officials said in 2017, they were taken on a short vehicle pursuit and then a foot chase when White ran from the vehicle. She was quickly captured in nearby woods.

Steven Michael Jones has since been released from the county jail. White was already in the jail under a $525,000 secured bond.
