A Nurse Who Spoke at the Republican National Convention is Under Arrest for Shooting Another Woman

The Republican National Convention did not feature much star power. Unlike the DNC, which had speeches by both celebrities and popular lawmaker, the RNC largely relied on everyday people. And some of those everyday people had been on the front lines fighting COVID-19.

Amy Johnson Ford, a nurse from West Virginia, praised Donald Trump for streamlining processes for nurses. She had also traveled to New York City to assist when the virus was rampaging though the city. But now Johnson Ford is under arrest on charges of shooting another woman in the stomach.

Grady Dotson, of the Williamson, West Virginia Police Department, said of the incident, “Through the investigation we came to find out that two females got into a verbal argument, turning into one of the females getting a gun. She did shoot the victim one time in the abdomen area.”

The police chief continued, “Amy is well-known around the area for her participation and going over to the RNC committee and a nurse that was helping out with the coronavirus and was on the front line.”

The victim, Jonda Whitt, is in stable condition and is expected to survive.
