LAKE CITY, Fla. (AP) -- A north Florida woman is accused of killing a man and stuffing his body into a bag.

Lake City police say they received a 911 call on Saturday night regarding a shooting.

The Gainesville Sun reports that police called the number back and a woman answered, saying "send police."

Lavell Gorge was standing in the yard when officers arrived. She told them "I shot him."
