NEW YORK POST:
A domestic violence case in South Carolina this week led a man to fatally shoot a horse before holding a woman against her will and making her watch as he shot himself in the face with a shotgun — and survived, authorities said.
Colton Hurley, 20, suffered non-life-threatening injuries from the shotgun blast due to its placement and peacefully surrendered to deputies, Laurens County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.
Deputies said Hurley had gone to the female victim’s home in the Hickory Tavern Community, but she wasn’t home at the time. When she arrived in her car, Hurley rammed it with his pickup truck until the victim got out and ran.
Hurley pursued, tackled and assaulted her, police said. The victim was able to escape his grasp and take shelter at a relative’s house.
