Somehow, dude survived.
According to police, Flores called 911 Saturday night to report her boyfriend had been shot. She initially told police her boyfriend informed her that he had been shot and asked her to call for help.
She later changed her story, telling police it was she that shot him because she believed he was cheating on her.
The victim reportedly told police he had fallen asleep sitting up in a chair, and woke to what he thought was the sound of fireworks. Oh, and excruciating pain in his lower extremities.
He had been shot once in the dick, and twice in the scrotum. Plus, there were additional gunshot wounds — neck, upper back, and thigh.
The man told officers he owned three 9-mm guns but said he didn’t think his Flores owned a handgun, let alone know how to use one. The man also denied having cheated on Flores, his girlfriend of two years.
A search of the residence revealed a .32 handgun box in a Victoria’s Secret bag near the woman’s clothing. The gun that presumably belonged in the box was found near the chair where the man was sleeping. Also found, the receipts for the gun and the appropriate ammo, dated February 16th of this year. On the back of the receipts, a handwritten map to a local shooting range. In Flores’ purse, an empty box of ammo, 32 caliber, which matched the rounds and casings scattered throughout the living room.
One officer stated in his report, “Based on the facts that the defendant has just recently purchased the firearm, the fact there were gunshots directed at the victim’s neck near his head and that the victim was sleeping at the time of the shooting and no argument was taking place, it is believed that the defendant intentionally planned to shoot the victim with premeditation.”
She’s been charged with one count of first-degree attempted murder and one count of aggravated assault, and has been ordered held on a $750,000 secured bond.Tags: aggravated assault, Arizona, Attempted Murder, Delia Flores, genitals, Scottsdale, Shooting
