The Walking Dead is a television series about a group of people surviving after zombies take over. It is not serious business!
It's also not serious enough to shoot your girlfriend over if you're arguing about it — which should go without saying. Yet, that actually happened.
Jared Gurman, 26, was charged with attempted murder after shooting his girlfriend with a .22-caliber rifle, piercing her lung and diaphragm, and shattering a rib.
Luckily she's stable.
So what were they arguing about? Well, he thought a zombie outbreak could happen due to a military mishap, and she disagreed because it's fiction. It became so heated that she decided she didn't want to stay the night with him, so she was going to drop him off at his house.
The argument then continued via text message, which got to the point where she felt the need to check on him in his home — that's when he pulled the gun on her. Here's what an officer said:
"She tried to diffuse the situation, to calm him down. She was walking up the stairs when Mr. Gurman raised the rifle, pointed it at her and fired one round into her back, causing serious injury."
He ended up taking her to the hospital and saying it was an accident before admitting that it wasn't.
We're not sure that relationship is gonna last — and we hope the judge bans him from all zombie material forever. Oh, and also guns!
