Woman, 44, arrested for fatal shooting inside Brooklyn party space

A woman was busted Thursday for allegedly shooting another woman to death inside a Brooklyn party spot last month — and said she did it because the victim ran over her foot while riding a bicycle, police and sources said.

Deonne Kirkland, 44, was charged with murder for allegedly shooting Tarcia Lysius, 44, in the head on Aug. 28 at the Hearts of Love party space on Liberty Avenue in East New York, according to police.

The shooter said she shot the other woman after a confrontation inside the club, a police source said.

“The victim was riding a bicycle around in the club and ran over the perpetrator’s foot,” the source said.

The two didn’t know each other previously, cops said.

Lysius was taken to Brookdale Hospital and pronounced dead.
