(04-16) 16:51 PDT RICHMOND — A 30-year-old woman shot and killed a teenage boy in Richmond after the two – who had a child together – argued over the victim's girlfriend, a prosecutor said Wednesday.
Melinda Gaffney surrendered Monday to San Francisco police in connection with the April 8 slaying of Terrance Forks, 16, outside the Crescent Park apartment complex, said Richmond police Sgt. Nicole Abetkov.
Prosecutors have charged Gaffney with murder and an enhancement for allegedly using a gun.
Gaffney shot the boy during the latest in a series of arguments over Terrance's girlfriend, said Contra Costa County prosecutor Mary Knox. Terrance died at the scene.
Gaffney fled in a Lexus that was later recovered, police said.
