Man arrested after allegedly shooting at live-in girlfriend
A Hot Springs man was arrested Tuesday morning after allegedly shooting at his live-in girlfriend during a confrontation at their apartment.
Nedraya Latrayvion McGowan, 28, who lists a Terry Street address, was taken into custody shortly before 8 a.m. in the area of Keuka and Sunnyside streets and charged with a felony count of aggravated assault on a family or household member, punishable by up to six years in prison.
McGowan, who lists no prior felony history, was being held on a $2,500 bond and was set to appear Wednesday in Garland County District Court.
According to the probable cause affidavit, shortly before 7:30 a.m., Hot Springs police Officers Stephen Parrott and Cash Murray responded to an apartment in the 300 block of Terry Street regarding a shooting that had just occurred.
They made contact with a woman, 31, who stated she was just in a disturbance with her live-in boyfriend, identified as McGowan, during which he grabbed her from behind in a chokehold and held her to the floor in their bedroom.
She said she grabbed a knife to defend herself and McGowan grabbed a “silver pistol with a long clip.” As they continued to argue, McGowan allegedly raised the pistol in her direction and fired one shot, which struck the bedroom window and continued outside.
Murray reportedly located a single 9-mm shell casing in the bedroom. Officers located McGowan a short time later in the area of Keuka and Sunnyside and took him into custody.
In searching McGowan, officers reportedly found two 9-mm rounds in the pocket of his hooded sweatshirt.
