Kearra Hardmon is recovering from a gunshot wound sustained during an argument with her former lover in Chief Keef’s OBlock. The shooting was captured on Facebook Live.
Labritney Austin, 29, turned herself into Chicago police less than two hours after the shooting. She was ordered held without bail during a Friday hearing at the Leighton Criminal Court Building.
She is facing a charge of aggravated battery with a firearm, and will appear again in court on Tuesday.
Kearra was surprised her girlfriend shot her.
“There was no pain for the first couple of seconds and then it just started feeling like throbbing and burning at the same time,” Kearra told Chicago WGN 9. “Then it felt like my arm was off my shoulder. I could not move my arm, that’s why I was so hysterical after a while.”
The bullet went through Hardmon’s shoulder, shattering her bone.
“I was literally right in front of her window, and if I wouldn’t have turned around I would have got shot in my chest, my face, my neck or something. I would never have been able to come back home to my baby,” she said. “My mama would have been burying her daughter.”
