Michael Bruty was in an argument with his girlfriend that was so loud it had drawn a crowd outside their condo.
Bruty put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger, sending the bullet through his head and across a parking lot hitting Jeane Sams in the leg.
Jeane Sams and her cousin were watching a movie with their children when Sams went outside to take a phone call.
Moments later her family heard a pop and then pounding on their door.
The Tampa Bay Times reports they opened the door and Jeane fell into the room, bleeding.
"I got shot," she yelled
It turned out the bullet had gone through Bruty’s head, killing him before it ended its trip in her leg.
When police first arrived they questioned several people including Bruty’s fiancé before finding the gun under his body.
Sams is expected to be fine and to be released from the hospital in the next few days.
