A Racine woman has been charged with attempted murder and several other offenses for allegedly trying to kill her child’s father with the child in the car.

According to Racine County Circuit Court documents, Jasmine Phillips, 27, of Racine says that she tried to kill the man after trading argumentative texts with him while he was at Gateway College, ending the argument with “She was on the way to Gateway to kill him.”

The man says after leaving Gateway College, he noticed Phillips following him and pointing a handgun at him.

He ducked down after hearing three gunshots, according to the criminal complaint.

Police found Phillips later, driving the black Saturn she was reportedly in during the shooting, with her 4-year-old child in the back seat.

The girl told police her mother had shot at her father and later threw the gun out of the car.

Phillips was arrested and also faces charges of possession of a handgun while intoxicated.
