(NBCNEWYORK) — A Long Island man has been arrested for allegedly shooting his girlfriend during a heated argument over the television show “The Walking Dead,” authorities say.
Jared Gurman, 26, was charged with attempted murder after shooting his girlfriend with a .22-caliber rifle at his Williston Park home early Monday morning, police said Tuesday.
The unidentified woman suffered a pierced lung, shattered rib and pierced diaphragm. She is in stable condition.
According to Nassau County police, Gurman was out with his girlfriend when the two began arguing over “The Walking Dead,” a television cable drama about a man who wakes from a coma to a world dominated by zombies. Gurman apparently felt strongly that a “military mishap” could occur on the show.
