BEAVERTOWN, Penn. — A family dinner ended with a gunshot at a Pennsylvania home this week, WNEP reports.
Jennifer Boop, 31, and her two children were sitting down for dinner at their home on Timber Road near Beavertown when she began arguing with her boyfriend, Brandon Doan. At one point, Doan appeared to kick out Boop and her two children, officials said.
Court paperwork explains that as Boop began packing her things in their bedroom, Doan walked in and grabbed her by the hair, then smashed a piece of pizza in her face.
According to investigators, Boop then grabbed a handgun off the dresser and fired one shot into Doan’s armpit.
According to court paperwork, Boop told police she did not know the gun was loaded and assumed all guns had a safety. Therefore, since she says she never took the safety off, she had no idea how the gun fired.
Doan remained in the hospital in critical condition Wednesday, the Sunbury Daily Item reports.
Boop is being held in lieu of $25,000 bail.
