 Argument Leads To Memphis Man Shooting At Nine Months Pregnant Girlfriend’s Stomach

On Wednesday, November 16th, in Memphis, Tennessee, an argument between Alvin Butler and his nine months pregnant girlfriend became violent and dangerous. According to Action News 5, the two were in the victim’s vehicle, when the heated argument began.

The 31-year-old wanted to end their relationship, which the victim claims frequently occurred when he became frustrated with his lack of employment throughout her pregnancy. When the soon-to-be mother agreed to the breakup, he became irate and the verbal argument quickly turned into a physical one.

After hitting her multiple times, Butler pulled out a handgun and pointed it at her. He then fired a shot towards her stomach. Fortunately, he missed, and the victim was able to call the police once the two had reached their destination, and she was able to run to a nearby gas station.

Alvin Butler was arrested and charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder and two counts of employing a firearm with intent to commit felony. His bond has been set at $500,000 and is scheduled to appear in court December 2nd.
