SAVANNAH, Ga. -- A Georgia beauty queen is accused of shooting her boyfriend, possibly during a fight over another woman, police said.

Miss Savannah Sharron Nicole Redmond, 21, was charged with aggravated assault after the Tuesday night incident and released on bail Wednesday. The charge could be upgraded to murder if the man she is accused of shooting, 25-year-old Kevin Shorter, dies, police said.

Shorter was listed in critical condition Thursday at Memorial Health University Medical Center, said hospital spokeswoman Sandy Griffin.

The circumstances of the shooting are still sketchy, but police said it occurred at a home belonging to the father of another woman Shorter was dating.

As Shorter left the home, he and Redmond started arguing, investigators said. Shorter was shot in the lower abdomen, and then he ran back into the house and collapsed.

Redmond fled the scene and was arrested later at her home, police said.

A high school teacher, Redmond graduated summa cum laude from Spelman College in Atlanta after completing a double major in English and pre-medicine in three years, according to the Miss Savannah Web site. She was in the process of getting her master's degree in education.

Redmond assumed the Miss Savannah title in August when Andrea Bailey _ who was originally crowned Miss Savannah _ won the title of Miss Georgia and went on to compete in the Miss America competition. Redmond also was pursuing a singing career.

Redmond couldn't immediately be reached for comment Thursday.



Update: Shorter died. Charges have been jacked to murder.

She is a beauty queen going out with a jacka$$? Doesn't that tell you anything? In the real world you would be surprised at the type of men women REALLY like.

One Question,

Afrogeek,

Are you serious? Please be joking...and if you are, that is not funny!

It is a shame that someone so blessed to have had the opportunity to go on to complete their endeavors would not have the self love to walk away from someone who is disrespecting their temple. But there are many of us that are and/or have been in this very situation.

On many African University(schools of learning) walls, one of the important tenets was to "KNOW THYSELF!" Many of my black/African/indigenous hued brothers and sisters are still dead to the knowledge of self. When you know self that is when you are able to love self.

Here goes a bright individual, who had a wonderful future ahead of herself, trashed her life because of someone who did not know or love self. A self-full person, be it man or woman, is not going to copulate with anyone and everyone. It's nasty, it's dangerous, and it's loathsome. Enough said.

Afro-geek, Aren't you kidding?

Peace,

WHEN THE HELL FORCES IS KNOCKING AT YOUR DOOR AND THE DEVIL IS OUT TO DESTROY, GOD COMMANDS YOU TO ORDER PEACE INTO YOU LIFE. MMMMM...IS THAT NOT WONDERFUL. LIVE, LOVE, AND GET ON YOUR KNEES \O/ KDO
This is a shame. This young woman had EVERYTHING going for her, but she let her ego get in the way. If the other woman wanted him, she should have let the other woman have him. This man (or any other man ) is not worth ruining her life and her future for. Now she has lost her freedon because she will be in jail for a long time. Was it worth it? NO!!!!!!
