A jealous man shot his girlfriend over a friend’s request she received via Facebook, according to police in Florida.
Nineteen-year-old Charles Tenpenny was arrested by the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office for shooting his 18-year-old girlfriend, who is 20 weeks pregnant.
At first, Tenpenny told police someone broke into their home and that the suspect, who was dressed in all black, shot his girlfriend before he left the home. However, when that story did not match the crime scene, Tenpenny changed his version of events and told the deputies that he accidentally shot his girlfriend during an argument after a man sent her a Facebook friend request.
He claimed that he accidentally pulled the trigger of his 9mm Glock while trying to turn off the laser sights.
