A Tallahassee woman is accused of attacking another woman with a shovel.

Tallahassee Police say it happened at a home on Brynmahr Drive early this morning.

Arrest papers say 20 year old Shannan Gordon got into an argument with a woman who lives here.

Arrest papers say Gordon picked up a shovel and started chasing her and another woman outside.

Arrest papers say Gordon hit one of them over the head with the shovel.

Arrest papers say both women managed to lock themselves inside the house and called 911 while Gordon tried to break down the back door.

"There was this like loud banging and constant screaming, not just like even words, just yelling, really loud at another girl for some relationship drama," said neighbor John McCormack.

The woman hit with the shovel had two knots on her forehead, police reports say.

Gordon is charged with aggravated battery, burglary and more. The arresting officer say she also tried to kick out the window of his patrol car as he took her to jail.
