A 16-year-old had planned to see his girlfriend on Sunday afternoon. But, according to deputies, her stepfather doesn’t like him, and the visit didn’t go as planned.
When the teenager arrived at his girlfriend’s Apopka home around 4 p.m., he saw two men — his girlfriend’s stepfather and her stepfather’s friend — each with a shotgun, according to Orange County Sheriff’s Office. The dauntless teen pulled the barrel of the gun to his face and said he was not scared, according to deputies.
That’s when the stepfather, 50-year-old Alvin Gene Knight, pulled the trigger, deputies said.
The teen was grazed on the face by the shot and transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
Knight will be charged with aggravated battery with a firearm, according to OCSO spokesman Paul Hopkins.
Acccording to court records, Knight has a criminal history that includes convictions for burglary, assault, various drug offenses and driving violations.
