WEST MAHANOY TOWNSHIP, Pa. – A Pennsylvania father is accused of shooting his daughter’s boyfriend in the groin.
Police said Donald Jenkins, 40, of Shenandoah shot his daughter’s boyfriend when he found the two of them at a hotel near Frackville Sunday afternoon.
Housekeeper, Lisa Mowery, was cleaning the room next door when she heard that gunshot. State police said Jenkins fired that shot, hitting his 20-year-old daughter’s boyfriend in the groin. Investigators said he was upset his daughter was dating her boyfriend. Mowery said she gave the victim towels to help stop the bleeding.
“I was scared, you know, I was scared to death,” Mowery told WNEP. “I just stayed in the room because I didn’t know if he was going to shoot us.”
