Woman charged with Lexington Crossing shooting re-arrested after allegedly posting about victim on Facebook

Staff report

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Jaileen Damaris Pagan, 26, was arrested for the second time in 23 hours this morning after allegedly violating her pre-trial release conditions by posting about the victim on Facebook and contacting the victim’s mother, friend, and employer.

Pagan was arrested early Friday morning for allegedly shooting at two people at Lexington Crossing Apartments. She was released after posting $22,000 bail, with the condition that she not contact the victims directly or through a third party.

At about 5:39 p.m. yesterday, Pagan allegedly “tagged” the victim in a Facebook post from the “Medusa Dons” account, blaming the victim for her arrest. The “Medusa Dons” account also replied to Alachua Chronicle’s Facebook post about Pagan, stating that she was the person described in the article and that she had acted in self-defense.

At about 7 p.m., Pagan allegedly sent five text messages to the victim’s mother with screenshots of the charges on the court system’s website and advised the victim to get a lawyer.

At about 9 p.m., Pagan allegedly sent private Instagram messages to a friend of the victim regarding the incident.

Pagan also allegedly contacted the victim’s employer via email about the incident.

Following these reports, a Gainesville Police Department officer made contact with Pagan, and she reportedly admitted post-Miranda that she had posted on Facebook, tagging the victim, then later deleted the post. She reportedly denied messaging the victim’s mother and friend and emailing her employer. Pagan reportedly admitted that her nickname is Medusa because she had long hair in the past.

Bail information is unavailable on weekends.

  • I for one like my women to be lady like. I don’t care one bit for women who try to act like a man- who get face tattoos and try to shoot people and cut their hair short like a boy. If if had any advice for ‘Medusa,’ it would be to try and get back in touch with your feminine side. It’s never too late.

    • Men are supposed to get face tattoos and try to shoot people? I’ve been slacking.

    • I’m sure she doesn’t care about how some stranger on the internet prefers “his lady”. She probably has a lady of her own who likes it just fine.

  • C’mon Chronicle staff…we already saw her pic, will Jake draw something less scary for us?

  • When Walter Green strikes again & only gives her a $22k bond for SHOOTING at people- doesn’t that pretty much set the stage for them to get right back out & right back after the victim?!
    Luckily she didn’t do more than this (yet) before Police rearrested her!

  • I knew it. I called that she was gonna bond out since it only cost her $2,200 to get out and get revenge in my comment on her first article.

  • Someone needs to send a message to the security company that this winner works for. Let cancel culture cancel her job.

  • Well, Let’s give credit where credit is due.
    The Deputies at the jail are still allowed to classify this suspect as a “woman”. 🤪
    Medusa Dons 😜
    Medusa Dons an orange jumpsuit from the county jail.

  • This one sexually confused idiot. Happy Pride Month y’all!!!

  • It’s disturbing to know there might be security workers who disobey the law so readily.

  • Jaileen grow your hair out, remove that ink, stop eating rug and carpet, and holla at your boy Guest here.

  • Medusa DON needs to man up and get over what relationship it has with the victim. This is what Hollywood make crime thrillers from.

  • Frankly, I’m shocked. In my experience, those with neck tattoos tend to be fine, upstanding members of society.
