A woman is in the hospital fighting for her life and her boyfriend is in jail after police said DeAngelo Brown shot her during an argument. 

This isn't the first time he's been accused of domestic violence.

Just a few months ago, prosecutors charged Brown in another incident involving a different woman.

Domestic violence advocates say it's important victims get out while they can.

DeAngelo Brown is facing a long list of felony charges after police said he shot his girlfriend. 

The arrest report said, “The suspect admitted he pulled the gun and shot the victim in the bedroom of the apartment. The victim also had injuries to her face."

The arrest report also said Brown and the victim were arguing outside when she ran back into the apartment and Brown went after her. 

Moments later, witnesses heard shots.

"The progression of violence comes maybe just small belittling. And then they say things that sort of put people in their place," said Tracey Lyall, CEO of Domestic Violence Intervention Services. 

Lyall doesn't know specifics about this case just yet, but being accused of such extreme violence, she's not shocked to know Brown had a previous domestic assault charge.

"I wish I could say that's rare … we've seen the level of violence increasing in relationships," Lyall said. 

"We say that violence thrives on silence and one of the best things you can [do] is tell someone. reach out and trust someone," Lyall said.
October is domestic violence awareness month, so DVIS will hold its annual Mutt Strut. It's an event to help bring awareness to the problem.
