WILLISTON PARK - Police say a Williston Park man shot his girlfriend following an argument about a popular TV show.

Police say 26-year-old Jared Gurman and his girlfriend were fighting via text message about AMC's "Walking Dead," a show about the so-called zombie apocalypse, before Gurman shot his girlfriend with a rifle.

Authorities say Gurman had been out drinking, and his girlfriend came to his house after a fight about whether the "zombie plague" could happen. That's when cops say Gurman shot his girlfriend in the back.

According to detectives, Gurman then drove the victim to North Shore Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park, where he was later arrested. She is listed in stable condition.

The 26-year-old is being held without bail on attempted murder charges.
