The Alabama man shot his girlfriend in front of their two children.

According to investigators, 39-year-old Jeremy Hardin walked up and shot Jody Marie Watson, 38, from behind, telling police that he was just tired of arguing with her.

Dispatchers received Hardin’s 911 call at approximately the same time they received a second 911 call from a neighbor who said Watson’s two children had come to their house and said their mother had been shot.

Chief Deputy Randy Christian said the small children witnessed the shooting but were not injured. Watson also had an older son, but he was at school when the incident occurred.

According to detectives, Hardin said that he and Watson had a history of fighting and that he wanted it to stop. Police report that they received three prior reports of domestic violence at the home — the most recent call taking place on March 9.
