According to a police report, the ex-girlfriend of the male, identified as Whiteplume, with whom she had had two babies, came over to visit the children. The mother, age 23, and her auntie and Whiteplume were all sitting on a couch when Whiteplume became upset that the mother of his children was now dating someone else. He issued a threat saying he would kill the other man, picked up a gun and began to load it and left the apartment.

In response, he is alleged to have struck her in the forearms to release her grip on his hair.
