Police: Man shot girlfriend in foot in fight about other woman

Posted: Updated:
SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Spartanburg police said a gunshot victim and her boyfriend gave differing stories about how she was shot in the foot, but it all started over an argument about another woman.

Police said they were called to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center just after midnight Tuesday about the injury.

The woman was shot once in her right foot and told officers she and her boyfriend, 39-year-old Kelvin Dean, were trying to buy marijuana from someone when she was shot, according to police.

Police said when they spoke to Dean, he told them something completely different. They said Dean reported driving with the woman when they heard what sounded like fireworks then noticed her foot was bleeding.

But as they investigated, police said they determined neither story matched the evidence.

Police said Dean shot his girlfriend in the foot as they argued over another woman.

Dean was arrested and charged with assault and battery with intent to kill, according to police.
