Have you ever been so mad that you shot someone because they didn’t agree with you about a TV show? If you have, you may need therapy…and lots of it! But if you shot your girlfriend over an argument about a TV show…you need to sort out your priorities.
A 26-year-old man from Long Island, New York named Jared Gurman (sounds pretty close to Gunman) shot his girlfriend in the back after an argument over the TV show “The Walking Dead,”. The unidentified woman suffered from a pierced lung and diaphragm, and also one shattered rib.
The argument started when Gurman was out with his girlfriend and the two began arguing over “The Walking Dead”. Gurman apparently felt strongly that there could be a “military mishap” that would end in some sort of virus being released. The woman took Gurman back to his home and refused to stay the night at his house, the fight then continued over texts. Once the dialogue between the two became so “angry and bitter”, the woman became worried and went back to his place to check on him. It was around 2:30 a.m. when she arrived at his house and saw Gurman outside the door holding a .22-caliber rifle.
The woman tried to reason with him, calm him down, by walking up the steps to talk to him. Once she started to get closer to him he shot the gun into her back only once, but was enough to cause serious injuries. After Gurman shot the woman he brought her to the hospital to be treated. The police arrived at the hospital where Gurman told them that it was accidental, but later told the truth that he did it on purpose.
I’ve never watched this show, but if I were Jared Gurman I definitely wouldn’t have gotten so mad to the point of shooting someone just because they don’t agree with me. Some people…they might as well become zombies themselves ;)
