Man Allegedly Shoots Woman in the Chest, Then Drives Her to New Jersey Hospital

A New Jersey man allegedly shot a woman with a handgun, then took her and two children to a hospital following some sort of domestic incident, according to a criminal complaint filed in Harrison Municipal Court.

Police received a call about a loud domestic violence incident at the home of Victor Segastume Saturday night, according to a complaint filed by Harrison County Patrol officer Joseph Sloan, who was dispatched to the home with two other officers. When police arrived, they noticed a trail of blood coming from the home's outside stairs.

That's when the 25-year-old suspect packed the woman and two children into a car and sped off. Officers forced their way into the first-floor apartment, where they found a bullet hole, according to the complaint.
