Clovis cops say man shot girlfriend in the head

FRESNO, Calif.

/*Jermaine Dupree-Means*/ was arrested Tuesday afternoon. The couple lives on Barstow Avenue near Villa in Clovis. All morning, crime scene processors documented evidence at the apartment.

Investigators say the 19-year-old victim called police around 2:30 to report she was shot and needed help. While she was on the phone with dispatchers, police say Dupree-Means went outside to hide the gun.

Police believe the two got into an argument when the victim went to hide in her bedroom. A short time later, police say he broke into the room and shot her in the head.

Vince Weibert with the Clovis Police Department said, "The female is expected to survive, however her condition is not stabilized. And we'll have more information as this story develops."

Police say Dupree-Means cut his arm during the disturbance. They aren't sure if the injury was an accident or intentional.
