A 30-year-old California woman has been charged in the fatal shooting of a 16-year-old boy who was the father of her child, a prosecutor said Thursday.

Melinda Gaffney had apparently been arguing with Terrance Forks about his girlfriend before she allegedly shot and killed him outside of a Richmond apartment complex on the night of April 8, Contra Costa County Deputy District Attorney Mary Knox said.

Prosecutors charged Gaffney with murder with an enhancement for use of a firearm causing great bodily injury, according to the district attorney’s office.

The charges came two days after Gaffney turned herself in to the San Francisco Police Department on a $1 million arrest warrant.

  1. wait, she is 30 he is 16 and she has a baby with him?! talk about double standards. If it was a 30 year old man fathering a child with a 16 year old girl, his ass would be in jail. If it wasn’t for this double standard her ass would have been in jail a long time ago and Terrance would still be alive. So why are the “authorities” charged with theft? They’re taking pay and not doing their jobs!
