Guy shoots girlfriend for not believing in the zombie apocalypse

A Long Island man has been arrested after allegedly shooting his girlfriend in the back during an argument over the likelihood of a zombie apocalypse. The two began arguing via text message about the probability that a scenario similar to the one playing out on The Walking Dead might occur in reality. The 26-year-old was reportedly very upset that his girlfriend had scoffed at the idea of real zombies. When she went over to his house to try to calm him down, police say he shot her in the back with a .22 assault rifle. He then drove her to the hospital where she's in serious but stable condition.
