A cleaver-wielding ex-girlfriend was shot in the chest at her former boyfriend’s home in West Feliciana Parish.
Kimberly Davis was brought to a nearby hospital after she was shot in the chest at about 1 a.m. Monday. She underwent surgery but her condition was not immediately available.
Authorities said Davis will face charges of attempted second-degree murder upon her release.
West Feliciana Parish sheriff’s officials said Davis kicked in the door of her former boyfriend’s trailer. Investigators said he was in the bedroom with his new girlfriend when Davis, carrying a meat cleaver, stormed into the room.
The new girlfriend was cut with the cleaver, and then she reportedly pulled out a pistol and shot Davis in the chest.
Capt. Spence Dilworth said the pistol used to shoot Davis was a .22 caliber. The sheriff’s office said the shooter will not be charged.
