Woman Falls In Love With Man Who Shot Her While He Was High

Yet another reason to just say no….

It’s a story as old as love itself: Boy meets girl; boy accidentally shoots girl after mistaking her for a deer while high on drugs; girl falls in love with boy.

Audrey Mayo says she had known Matthew Webb for a few weeks before he shot her in the leg and nearly killed her, but it was on that fateful day that they officially became a couple.

Mayo, 24, and Webb, 23, both of LaFayette, Georgia, were hanging out on the roof of Webb’s mom’s house when Webb allegedly spotted some deer.

He quickly grabbed his trusty semi-automatic carbine and headed into the woods.  A short while later Mayo says she thought she heard Webb call out to her, asking her to bring him his knife.

She walked across the street toward his location, and let out a “half yell” so as to not “scare the deer away.”  Webb mistook Mayo’s movement for a deer and fired a single shot.

“And then I heard a gunshot,” Mayo told the Chattanooga Times Free Press. “And then I felt it. And then I hit the ground.”

The next thing Mayo knew, she was waking up in a hospital bed with Webb sitting beside her. He had written her an apology note.

“Once we realized she was alive — and that she was going to be alive — we started to lighten up a little bit,” Audrey’s sister Rachel told the paper.

Mary even let Matthew move in so he could help take care of Audrey during her recovery period.

Though the family refuses to hold the incident against Webb, the local authorities are not so forgiving.

He was arrested on charges of firing a gun within 150 feet of a road. He also faces several hunting violation and drug charges after admitting he was high on “several illegal drugs” at the time of the shooting.

Audrey, however, insists the two will continue to give their love a shot.

We’d love to hear them tell their future kids the “how-mommy-met-daddy” story if they ever have any. SMH.
