Man shoots pregnant girlfriend over Facebook requests she received

The bullet went through the victim’s hand and into her eye

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.

Accidentally shot

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 friends request.

He claimed that he accidentally pulled the trigger of his 9mm Glock while trying to turn off the Laser Sights.

The police said that the bullet went through the victim’s hand and into her eye, leaving her in critical but stable condition.

Drugs

Before officers arrived, Tenpenny threw his gun over a fence in his backyard. Detectives were able to locate the gun and he was arrested.

According to the sheriff’s office, Tenpenny also admitted to dealing with drugs and owning the gun for protection.

Tenpenny was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and false report of a crime.
