NYC Cop Shoots Girlfriend Twice Over Text Message

Ekeythia Dunston, a New York City cop, says she fired two bullets from her police-issued revolver at her girlfriend Erica Legall in self-defense after Legall allegedly attacked her with an iron during a fight over a text message Legall received. The shots entered Legall’s thigh and shoulder. Dunston, who was suspended without pay and charged with assault, weapons possession (!), and endangering the welfare of a child, “was treated for an iron-induced head injury at New York-Presbyterian Hospital.” Legall is also expected to be charged. They’ve been together for give years and have two sons. [NYDN, NYP]

  • PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS

    Well considering, I would guess ironing out their differences is certainly out of the question now………….

    @Bill Perdue:

    The question should be, “why does Queerty never spell check before posting their articles?”

    This is what passes for New York’s “finest” nowadays? The woman is obviously not emotionally qualified to be a meter maid much less a gun-toting police officer. Thanks affirmative action, for setting the bar so low.

    @Kieran: Wow you’re a racist pig!

  • biguy

    So was Ekeythia just supposed to permit her gf to beat her to death with an iron?

    @James_From_The_Great_City_of_Cambridge: Back to politics, the subject you want to avoid at all costs. Thanks for proving that there are no differences between obots and your incestuous cousinbrothers in GOProud.

    You both pigheadedly support bigoted candidates who oppose same sex marraige. [img]http://cinie.files.wordpress.com/2008/12/0145130750085obama-warren.jpg[/img]

    @greenluv1322: When did he ever mention anything about her race? Or is criticizing a person of color for their behavior now racist?

    Also, why does the article not mention what was in the text message? Was it from an ex-girfriend?

  • ohplease

    the giving years………

  • REVEMUPMAN

    Why arrest her?

    She’s a strong black woman right?

    LMFAO……

    @Syl: He cited affirmative action as the vehicle to thank for her being on the force.
