THORNTON, Colo. — A Thornton family is turning to the FOX31 Problem Solvers for help after they say a man shot their daughter shortly after their relationship ended.
Samantha Barrett, 19, survived but the man who shot her is still on the loose.
It was a week ago when Barrett went to a friend’s house to hang out and saw her typical Saturday night turn terrifying.
“My ex-boyfriend showed up,” she said. “We had been broken up for a few weeks. He came to the door to talk to me, I asked my friend if he could ask him to leave and I went back to the room.”
But her ex-boyfriend didn’t leave. He hopped over the backyard fence and approached the room Barrett was in.
“I walked over to the window and I saw him there and I told him he needed to leave,” she said. “I went to talk away from him and within a split second he shot me in the back.”
