Bernalillo County deputies say a woman shot her step-mother's boyfriend.

Starla Hunter is facing aggravated battery charges. The shooting happened in late October at a home in Carnuel.

Deputies say Hunter shot Felipe Padilla multiple times.

She accused him of beating her step-mom.

Padilla's family told deputies the woman would beat herself while on drugs. They said she would then claim Padilla hit her.

Padilla survived the shooting.
