Two brothers allegedly got into a dispute outside a gas station over whose girlfriend had "the least amount of chastity," which led to the gunfire. According to AL.com, Antionio Hasberry left with his girlfriend, Taneil Bolden, in their vehicle, while the other brother and his partner also drove away. As they left, Hasberry allegedly shot toward his brother from inside his vehicle.
The two couples reportedly continued to drive away, and Hasberry then drove by his brother’s residence and shot his gun into his home. According to AL.com, the brother wasn’t yet home but pulled up and witnessed Hasberry with his gun, so the brother fired back.
During the gunfire, the 2-year-old girl was shot near Thomason Avenue and Waverly Street, police said.
Bolden, the victim’s mother, and Hasberry were reportedly interviewed by police.
According to police, Hasberry was arrested and charged with attempted murder, first-degree assault, discharging a firearm into an unoccupied dwelling, certain persons forbidden to carry a firearm, and endangering the welfare of a child. His bond was set at $167,500.
Bolden was reportedly arrested and charged with first-degree assault and endangering the welfare of child, and her bond was set at $32,500.
Tarrant Police Chief Wendell Major told AL.com that because Bolden and Hasberry initiated the shooting, they are facing charges, although authorities have not yet confirmed whose bullet injured the child because it’s still in the girl’s body.
According to AL.com, medical staff originally believed the girl would suffer full paralysis, but there has since been some movement in her upper body.
