Blotter: Report: Woman in stable condition after being shot

Comments () A Text Size

Capt. Jay Powell with the Lewisville Police Department said a 21-year-old woman remains in stable condition after reportedly being shot by her 22-year-old-boyfriend recently.

Powell said officers responded last Wednesday to the 1300 block of Jasmine Drive for a gunshot call. Upon arrival, officers discovered the woman had been shot. Initially, Powell said, officers on the scene were told the shooting was accidental.

The female, reports show, was transported to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, where she remains in stable condition.

She was shot twice with her boyfriend’s AK-47, according to reports, once in her left arm and once under her left breast, with the bullet exiting her center back. Her injuries required surgery, doctors said.

After further investigation and obtaining a search warrant for the residence, police determined the shooting was not accidental.

Rooms in the home were found wrecked, including holes punched in the wall and a bedroom door removed from the hinges, police said.

Reports show the boyfriend had damages to his body consistent with the wreckage and had told police he had been drinking before handling his weapon.

The 22-year-old man was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and remains in Denton County Jail with bail set at $150,000.
