Brooklyn Woman Shot In Buttocks By Boyfriend

September 8, 2015  |  

A domestic dispute between one Brooklyn couple ended with a man behind bars and his 21-year-old girlfriend hospitalized.

According to Page Six, the couple got into an argument early Saturday morning inside of an apartment on Kings Highway in the Brownsville area of Brooklyn. At approximately 6:30 p.m., the woman tried to exit the apartment, but as she made her way to the door, 26-year-old Keshawn Decosta allegedly produced a gun and opened fire, shooting her in the buttocks.

Emergency responders transported the victim to Brookdale Hospital where she is said to be recovering and in stable condition. The young woman was able to identify her attacker to the police even though he fled the scene before they arrived. According to Gothamist, police later arrested Decosta. He has been charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon.

It is unclear what sparked the argument between the couple.
