Robert Allen Kleman fires gun at girlfriend after she refuses to marry him

A Hobart man allegedly fired a shotgun after his girlfriend turned down his marriage proposal, police said.

Robert Allen Kleman III, 29, was charged with three counts of criminal recklessness through Lake Superior Court.

Police responded to a complaint of shots fired Sunday in the 300 block of North Colorado Street. Kleman at first told police a friend, a member of a biker gang, was at his house. While there, the friend supposedly dropped his gun causing it to discharge, Kleman told police.

Kleman's girlfriend told police he had asked her to marry him and after she turned down his offer, he became angry. She said he then pulled out a gun, pointed it over her head and fired several shots. (more)
