A Las Vegas woman, caught in a love triangle, was shot in the head after she refused to take the morning-after abortion pill.
Police say that 21-year-old Gregory Myrick was having a sexual affair with Breyana Lewis and the two got into a heated argument when the victim told Myrick she might be pregnant.
Myrick insisted that Lewis have an abortion because he was engaged to another woman. Myrick gave his 20-year-old fiancé, Daquesha Fowler, a handgun and told her to shoot Lewis.
Police have charged both assailants with attempted murder with a deadly weapon.
The victim’s injuries were not life threatening and she is expected to recover.
According to the Review Journal,
Lewis told officers with Las Vegas police’s Violent Crimes Section that she had been having a sexual relationship with Myrick for two months, and Fowler, who was Myrick’s fiancee, fired at her with a type of green, long gun rifle, the report said.
Lewis told police that she was having an argument with Myrick, who was angry at her for not taking the morning-after pill and possibly being pregnant.
Afterward, Lewis drove Myrick to his apartment complex. As soon as he got out of the vehicle, someone shot at her at least twice. Police said Fowler was firing on the car from a second-floor patio in an “ambush style attack,” the report said.
Lewis escaped and drove to another location to call 911. An examination at University Medical Center revealed she had a single gunshot to her upper right forehead. The bullet did not pierce her skull, however, and traveled around the cranium to the top of her head, where it remains.
Police said the injury was not life-threatening, and told the Review Journal on Saturday that Lewis was released later that afternoon.
Life Dynamics, Inc. a national pro-life organization located in Denton, Texas has documented that violence inflicted on pregnant women by pro-choice men who want their pregnancy aborted is nothing new.
A large volume of these cases has been compiled in a report entitled, “Under-the-Radar Violence in the Conflict Over Abortion.”
