Dante White fired a bullet intended for the boyfriend of his 25-year-old daughter, striking her instead as she stepped between the two men.
Chicago police responded to the domestic dispute in 4900 block of West Quincy Street in South Austin on Saturday, reports the Tribune. White’s daughter was grazed in the arm by the bullet when she tried to protect her boyfriend once her father grabbed a handgun.
The daughter was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in stable condition, reports the New York Daily News. White, a convicted felon with a gang affiliation, fled the scene but was later aprehended, said the Sun-Times.
For his bad decision-making and poor marksmanship, the Daily News said White, 49, faces charges of unlawful use of a weapon and possession of a weapon with a defaced serial number.
