Police said Washington was arguing with his 52-year-old girlfriend Saturday morning in an Idlewood neighborhood home in the 1200 block of Meridene Drive.

Then, just before 9 a.m., police believe Washington shot his girlfriend in the back multiple times. The woman, who police have not identified, was transported to an area hospital.

Northeast district detectives investigated the incident and obtained arrest warrants for Washington later on Saturday.

After a short foot chase, Washington was arrested and police said they found him with a firearm.
