Facebook Girl Fight Ends in SoCal Man Getting Shot in Face: Catherine Villarreal And Her Boyfriend Arrested
Maybe they should call it anti-social networking.
Southern California authorities say a Facebook fight between two women escalated into a shooting that left a man with a bullet to the face.
It all culminated at 8 p.m. Tuesday, say San Bernardino County Sheriff's officials, when ...
... 21-year-old Catherine Villarreal allegedly went with her bf, Jerry Ramirez, to the Victorville home of her Facebook foe in the 14000 block of Hesperia Road to confront her.

Karen Hunt of the department says that's when all hell broke loose: Villarreal allegedly hit her frenemy with a bat and, to make matters worse, the bf then allegedly opened fire on the victim's brother.

The bro took a blast to the face and was said to be in critical condition. However, Jodi Miller of the San Berdoo sheriff's told the Weekly that the man has since been stabilized at a hospital and "was able to speak to detectives" recently.
His sister sustained minor injuries and was treated at the scene.
The alleged Facebook gangsters fled but later turned themselves in, authorities said:
The gun was recovered, Jerry Ramirez (24) was booked on suspicion of attempted murder and lovely Catherine was jailed on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
