BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (WPTV) -- A 21-year-old woman shot a man in a Publix parking lot after he gave her counterfeit cash during a drug deal they set up through Snapchat, Boynton Beach police said.

Micaela Francisco was arrested Thursday morning on charges of aggravated battery, carrying a concealed firearm during the commission of a felony and improper exhibition of a firearm.

According to a Boynton Beach police report, Francisco arranged to meet with the victim in the parking lot of the Publix on Congress Avenue to sell him marijuana.

Officers found a car that had crashed into the concrete barriers near the entrance to Publix and seven shell casings in the parking lot. The victim was hospitalized to be treated for injuries that were not life-threatening.

Police said Francisco told them she noticed that the money he tossed into her car after she handed him the marijuana was "obviously fake," so she pulled out her gun as the man started to drive away and fired several shots at his car.

Francisco was held without bond in the Palm Beach County jail.
