UPDATE: The woman who was pushed died this afternoon, the DA's office reports.
Tajanetta Downing, 24, was ordered held in lieu of $75,000 bail today at her arraignment on charges she pushed an elderly woman to the ground in Chinatown, "causing a serious head injury to the victim," the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
WBZ reports the woman is not expected to survive - and that a member of the Ghostbusters film crew helped police find her after the incident at Chauncy and Essex - near where they were filming yesterday.
According to the DA's office:
Assistant District Attorney Amy Galatis of the DA’s Homicide Unit told the court that Downing and the 72-year-old female victim crossed paths in the area of Essex and Chauncy streets yesterday. Investigators believe they had some fleeting physical contact after which Downing allegedly shoved the older woman.
The older woman fell and hit her head on the pavement. She was rushed to Tufts Medical Center with a serious, life-threatening head injury. She remains hospitalized in critical condition.
Downing's alleged temper has gotten her in trouble before.
