25-year-old mother of three who was shot in the face reacts to her boyfriend's arrest

- “I would not wish anything like this on anybody not even my worst enemy,” said Shelby Turman. “Not even him,”

The him Turman is referring to is 26-year-old Noah Wayne Allen her boyfriend of one year.

“Noah Wayne Allen you’re charged with aggravated assault on a family member serious bodily injury,” a judge said to Allen during his probable cause hearing.

“I remember telling him to stop playing with the gun,” Turman said.

When Fox26 first talked to Turman she had just been released from the hospital and couldn’t remember much about that night.

She says Allen was taking shots of vodka and she remembers being on the floor.

“It looked like there was blood on the wall and I could see blood coming out from underneath my head,” Turman said. “And I heard his faded voice saying I’m sorry please stay with me don’t leave me I’m sorry.”

Before his arrest Turman says Allen told her mother she shot herself.

Then she says he changed his story to it was an accident.

“I wish it was but no I don’t think it was an accident,” said Turman.

Allen is free on a 30 thousand dollar bond but an emergency protection order is now in place.

He has not been convicted of aggravated assault but Allen can have no contact with Turman or her family.

What would Turman say to Allen now?

“My main question to him would be why I want to know why he did this,” Turman said.

Turman says she’s learned a lot from this experience and now wants to help others in domestic abuse situations.

She says she ignored the warning signs and stayed.

She says she doesn’t want to see other victims make the same mistake.
