BRIDGEPORT — A local man police say shot his girlfriend rather than pay her child support has been held on $500,000 bond.
Termane Smith, of Naugatuck, was in court Wednesday to faces charges including first-degree assault.
Police said on Nov. 3, officers were called to the hospital after a woman came in with a gunshot in her left upper arm.
The victim at first said she did not know who shot her, but later said it was the 40-year-old Smith.
She told police when she talked to Smith about paying child support for their two children he “flipped out.”
