SIOUX CITY | Two people were charged with first-degree robbery Wednesday in connection with a shooting in the parking lot of the Singing Hills Wal-Mart last week.

At 3 a.m. on March 9, Kelsey Kritzer, 23, arranged to meet two subjects at the store to collect money for a previous drug debt, court documents said.

The Sergeant Bluff woman asked Luis Lira, 22, also known as “Lil Cholo,” to come with her during the collection.

When the subjects arrived, Lira walked up to the passenger side of the vehicle and told them to roll down the window and demanded the money, the documents said.

When the window was down three inches, Lira pointed a pistol at the victims, which caused them to speed away.

Lira then fired the pistol at the fleeing car. The documents said one bullet entered through the rear window and struck the driver in the back of the right shoulder.

The documents did not say the severity of the victim’s injuries.

Lira, of Sioux City, was arrested Wednesday morning following a traffic stop. A glass pipe, a scale and 1.5 grams of meth were found inside the car.

Lira was booked into the Woodbury County Jail for a number of drug charges and first-degree robbery, reckless use of a firearm and a felon in possession of a firearm. His bond amount is $300,000.

Kritzer was also arrested and booked Wednesday evening on charges of first-degree robbery and driving on a suspended license. Her bond has been set at $100,000.

Both have court dates on March 27.
