Thanksgiving Argument Ends in Shooting

Gastonia Police Department
Press Release

Officers from the Gastonia Police Department arrested Robert Lamar Adams,  47, after he shot his 39-year-old girlfriend following an argument outside their Bond Avenue home Thanksgiving morning.  

At 7:40 AM, the Gaston County Communications Center received a 9-1-1 call from a resident reporting that his neighbor had just been shot and that the victim was now on his front porch.  Upon arrival, first responders saw the woman on the neighbor’s porch suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest and the neighbor rendering first-aid to the victim.  The victim was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Officers at the scene determined that Adams shot the victim after an argument and that Adams was last seen walking through the neighborhood. Officers quickly located Adams still walking through the area and arrested him.  The handgun believed to have been used in this shooting was located discarded outside a nearby home.  

Adams is charged with attempted first-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a felon. He is being held without bond.
