A Hempstead woman was charged Friday in the double shooting that left one man dead and another wounded early Thursday, Nassau police said.

Laquasia Calloway, 20, of Baldwin Road, is expected to be arraigned Saturday on criminally negligent homicide and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon in the shooting that killed Damien Pinckney, 37, and injured another man, 19, with a bullet wound to the arm, police said.

They were shot in Pinckney’s Hempstead Village home on Lawson Street about 4:10 a.m. Thursday, police said. He was hit in the chest once and was pronounced dead about two hours later at Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola. The other man, who police did not name, was treated and released.

Authorities did not release other details in the shooting.
