Kimberly Gustofson - Jailed After Shooting Boyfriend In Face After He Dared Her To Shoot Him

Ocala, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Kimberly Gustafson, a 50-year-old Ocala woman was jailed Thursday after her boyfriend dared her to shoot him, so she did.

According to the Ocala Police Department, officers were dispatched to the couple's home about 12:45 a.m. on a report of a domestic altercation between Gustafson and her boyfriend.

When police arrived, they found 57-year-old Rodney Lee Gilbert laying on the floor with a gunshot to his face. He was rushed to a local hospital, where he later died of his injuries. Gustafson, who fired the shot, fled the scene in her 1998 Mercury, but was later found and apprehended. The gun was found in her vehicle.

Investigators say when they questioned Gustafson, she admitted that she and her boyfriend had been arguing over her drinking.

During the dispute, Gustafson retrieved a .38-caliber antique revolver from their bedroom and threatened to shoot Gilbert. Witnesses at the scene pleaded with Gustofson to put the gun away - and when she headed back towards the room to do so, the boyfriend stood up and dared her to shoot him.

That's when Gustofson turned around and shot the man point blank in the face.

Gustafson was booked into the Marion County Jail and charged with manslaughter with a firearm and domestic violence. She remained jailed on Friday.
