NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Police say a woman is in custody and her sister is wanted for aggravated assault after they were involved in a dispute that included a non-critical stabbing and other threatening behavior on Monday at a North Nashville funeral home.

Police responded to the incident at Terrell Broadly Funeral Home on Clarksville Pike around 1 p.m.

Angel Chatman, 28, was the ex-girlfriend of the deceased. Police say Angel’s sister, Travonda Chatman, 26, was also involved in the incident.

According to officials, the dispute began when the two women were told they were not welcome at visitation services underway.

During the argument that ensued, police say, Angel pulled a knife and cut the deceased’s sister on her back.

The victim’s family told police that the women then pulled out guns and threatened the deceased’s mother and uncle. The women left the building and got into Angel’s Infiniti SUV.

When Angel was backing out of her parking spot, police say, she struck a pickup truck pulling into the funeral home parking lot owned by the deceased’s brother.

According to officials, when the man exited his pickup truck, Angel reportedly put her car in reverse again and pinned him between the truck and her car. He sustained injuries to his legs.

He and his sister, who was stabbed, were transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center with non-life-threatening wounds.

Angel Chatman surrendered to police late Monday afternoon. She is charged with four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and one count of reckless endangerment and vandalism over $2,500. She is being held on a $100,000 bond and a required 12-hour domestic violence hold.

Her sister, Travonda, has not been arrested yet but will also face charges.
