“This dude got a gun pointed to my boyfriend’s head,” Childs told the 911 dispatcher on Tuesday. “I’ve got a restraining order on him. The police told me to call when I see him. I gave you the address. Can’t you just send somebody out there? I’m scared. He’s got a gun. I can’t talk … I can’t talk. I’m in a bad situation.”

Goodwin has had a history of domestic violence and LaShonda had a restraining order against him. He has also been booked into the Montgomery County Jail about 15 times for various offenses starting in 2011.
