. a neighbor’s house and returned home,
where her boyfriend grabbed her by the
hair, pushed her to the ground and
kicked her in the back of the head.'

shares the same address as the shooting
victim, arrived and left with the 15
month-old boy, her daughter’s boyfriend
threatened her with the gun, she said.
T he shooting Monday occurred at
the 20-year-old man’s home because of
and ongoing dispute, she said.
The victim was transported to
BryanLGH Medical Center West, she
said, and police found the alleged shoot
er inside the apartment building.
Neighbors had called 911, she said.
