Early on Monday morning, a Williston, New York couple began to argue over AMC’s, The Walking Dead. Around 2:30 a.m., the argument escalated, and the man shot his girlfriend with a .22 caliber rifle. He later tried to say the event was an accident, but eventually confessed.

Ok, it’s cool to be passionate about horror, people — who among us isn’t?

But this is extreme and super sad.

The couple, like many horror fans do, were fighting over whether a zombie apocalypse is be possible. The shooter, 26-year-old Jared Gurman, stated he believed a “military mishap” could cause zombies to be produced in today’s world and his girlfriend disagreed.

According to NBC New York, the shot hit the girlfriend’s back, causing damage to her spine, ribs, and a lung.

Our thoughts are with this poor girl. Maybe she’ll make a speedy recovery and try not to get revenge by nailing her (hopefully) ex-boyfriend’s junk to a board and digging out his eye with a spoon. *cough* Michonne.
