Daycare Owner Shoots Her Husband For Allegedly Molesting Kids

A woman accused of shooting her husband at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in D.C. did so because she claims he was molesting children, court documents reveal.

Police say the call came in around 7:40 p.m. Thursday for reports of a man shot on the eighth floor of the hotel. Police say by then, the suspect had barricaded herself inside one of the rooms.

According to court documents, officers arrived at the room and began speaking with the suspect through the door. The officers asked the suspect, identified as Shanteari Weems, 50, of Randallstown, Maryland, to exit the room, but instead she started indicating that she wanted to shoot herself.

Police say during the conversation, they asked Weems if there was a person who had been shot inside the room, to which Weems replied that “he’s a child molester.”The victim then shouted to the officers that he was inside the room and had been shot in the head and leg, to which Weems responded by telling him to “shut up” and threatening to kill the victim.

Police eventually made entry into the room and immediately detained Weems. They said they found two handguns inside the room, one was in Weems’s purse and the other was found inside an unlocked safe in the room.

Court documents claim that while Weems was detained, she revealed more to officers on the scene about her relationship with the victim. Weems claimed that she had been married to the victim for five years and that they live in Baltimore.

Weems also revealed that she owns a childcare center in Baltimore County and that she had recently received multiple calls from parents of the daycare accusing her husband of molesting their children. Weems allegedly then told police that she did not want to kill her husband, instead just hurt him. She did, however, tell police that she wants to kill herself.

Police say they found a letter inside the room, allegedly written by Weems, which reiterates that claim. The letter adds that Weems was hoping to paralyze her husband and that she wants justice for the kids at her daycare.
