Sources report that Monday’s shooting incident involving a White House staffer, Barvetta Singletary and her U.S Capitol Police Boyfriend. Singletary fired rounds at her boyfriend after being denied entry into his phone. She assumed he was cheating on her and proceeded to search his truck at her home in Prince George’s County, Maryland.
Reports the Washington Post:
Singletary asked the officer about another woman he was dating and left her house to search his Cadillac Escalade for his cellphones, the documents state.
When she found the officer’s phones, she also retrieved his service weapon in his bag and demanded that he give her the passwords to his phones, charging documents state.
The officer ran back to the house, and Singletary followed, later pointing the gun at him, police said.
“You taught me how to use this; don’t think I won’t use it,” police said Singletary told the officer. “Your phone is more important than me holding this gun on you?”
Singletary then fired at the officer and missed, the documents state.
The officer eventually fled, and “the defendant was observed wiping the gun down with a towel,” according to charging documents.
Prince George’s police were called to the scene after the officer called 911.
No one was injured during the altercation, police said.
Thankfully, no one was injured. Sadly, Ms. Singletary may have just lost her dream job.
