Woman who mowed down beau’s ex-girlfriend in NYC slapped with murder charge: cops

A woman was charged with murder Wednesday for allegedly running over her beau’s ex-girlfriend in a Brooklyn parking lot earlier this month, cops said. 

Naomi Broomes, 33, was busted around 12:30 p.m. for allegedly mowing down 24-year-old Shakira Serrano in the parking lot of the victim’s building within East New York’s Pink Houses on Loring Avenue near Crescent Street around 7:30 p.m. Jan. 11, police said.

The deadly caught-on-video clash – which NYPD Chief of Detectives Joseph Kenny described Tuesday as “borderline domestic violence” – began with “some pushing and shoving,” the police official said.

But then Broomes hopped behind the wheel of her beau’s 2008 Mercury and attempted to run over Serrano, Kenny and sources said.

Broomes missed Serrano – so she decided to circle the car around the parking lot, Kenny said.

While Broomes drove around, Serrano started fighting with her ex-boyfriend and fell to the ground, the chief added.

At that point, Broomes ran over Serrano, Kenny said.

Shocking footage shows the vehicle mowing down Serrano and callously leaving her body on the ground before the man rushed to his ex’s side.

Serrano was taken to Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center, where she succumbed to her injuries.

She suffered what doctors called an “internal decapitation” – which means that “the spinal cord and head were separated from each other without breaking the skin,” Kenny said.

The deadly vehicular assault was captured on surveillance video.

“So the head remained on her but everything else was broken,” he added. “All her ribs are broken. Her arms were broken. Her shoulders were broken and we actually, during crime scene examination of the recovered car, we found a pink fingernail underneath the undercarriage of the car that belonged to the victim.”

Broomes who cops say was also charged with leaving the scene of an accident has a couple of sealed arrests, police sources said.

Her boyfriend requested a lawyer, and police haven’t been able to talk to him, Kenny said.
