Man 'shoots his teenage girlfriend for going to a party without him'

An enraged man allegedly shot his teenage girlfriend because she went to a party without him.

Fahd Mahdi, 18, told his 17-year-old girlfriend that ‘if she went without him there would be trouble’, according to charging documents obtained by

Police responded around 2.30am on August 6 to a hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah, where a teen girl was being treated for a gunshot wound on her leg. She had been driven there by her friends.

The girl informed cops that she told her boyfriend, Mahdi, that she would go to the party without him and that he grew upset.

She went to the party close to 1400 S Main without him.

Shortly after, Mahdi went himself and called for her to come out, cops said.

Mahdi ‘threatened to hurt her and told her that he was not afraid to punch her in front of everyone’, states the charging document.

That evening, the girl sat in her friend’s car in the back seat and Mahdi knelt by her.

The girl ‘stated that Mahdi displayed a pistol, and she asked him if he had taken pictures with the gun. (She) reported that her ears started to ring, and she realized that she had been shot in the leg by Mahdi’, states the document.

She later told detectives that Mahdi’s relationship with her was ‘violent and abusive’ and that he was ‘very possessive of her and treats her like she is his property’.

The girl added that Mahdi ‘is physically, mentally, and emotionally abusive toward her’, the documents state. There was a ‘history of abuse between her and the defendant’.

Mahdi has been charged with a first-degree felony charge of discharge of a firearm causing serious injury. Prosecutors asked for him to be held in Salt Lake County Jail without bail.
