Cleveland Man Decided To Win An Argument With His Ex-Girlfriend By Shooting Her 4 Times
Um, the world really is a crazy place and now we want to go out and buy fifty extra locks for our doors. We know that wouldn’t actually help, but whatever.

A man is accused of shooting his ex-girlfriend four times, after he showed up on the porch of her East Side home asking to speak with her.

A first-degree felonious assault warrant was issued for the arrest of 34-year-old Demetrius Matthews on Tuesday.

At 2 AM on Monday, Matthews knocked on his ex-girlfriend’s door, asking to talk with her. 

She stepped outside on the porch to engage Matthews in conversation. In the middle of the chat, Matthews pulled out a gun and shot her four times!

The 40-year-old victim suffered two gunshot wounds to her abdomen, one to her thigh and one to the back of her head.

The woman’s son heard someone run off through the snow and a witness heard a car peel away, the report stated. Wow.

The woman’s 21-year-old daughter heard her mother calling for help and found her just inside their front door. Paramedics rushed the woman to University Hospitals, where she was treated and later released.

According to the police report, investigators found part of a bullet stuck in the front door. Hospital staff found another bullet still lodged inside the woman’s body.

In December, police investigated Matthews for stealing credit cards from the same woman. So, yes, we hope he stays far, far away from her from now on. Duh.

Family members told police that they suspected him in the recent theft of a television and Playstation from the home. 

Matthews has prior convictions for theft and receiving stolen property. Oh and he is on the run.

Is something in the water these days? 

A Brooklyn father suffering from schizophrenia (and drinking Hennessy) shot his one-year-old daughter his step-father and step-brother, before turning the gun on himself in a murder-suicide.

Yup. 27-year-old Terrance Briggs had attempted to get back together with his daughter's mother, Olivia Callendar, shortly before committing the horrendous act.

An insider shared, "He wanted to get back together with her for the baby’s sake. She must have said no. He told her he was depressed because somebody in his family had died."
