A former Arizona Wildcats football player was arrested in the Houston area in connection with his girlfriend’s shooting death.
Police arrested Bobby Wolfe on a manslaughter charge for the killing of 23-year-old Chrisheena Lee in Pasadena, Texas. Officers found Chrisheena Lamontrici with several gunshot wounds. She was flown to the hospital but died from her wounds.
Pasadena police said Wolfe told them he heard a break-in at the door and grabbed his weapon. The 22-year-old thought he was in the process of being robbed.
“We’re going to collect shell casings. We’re going to look at the trajectory of the bullets and compare that to his statement and try to see if everything matches up. If it truly is accidental, obviously this is a very sad situation,” Sgt. Raul Granados said on Monday. “If he did believe there was a break-in and, in fact, there wasn’t, he ended up shooting his loved one. It’s a very difficult situation for him. If there was an intruder, obviously, we want to find maybe doorbell cameras, maybe cameras at the apartment complex, to see if we are going to have to look for a suspect out there, or what happened at the door that startled him enough to get his weapon out and start shooting.”
Wolfe stayed at the scene, told police he shot Lamontrici and cooperated with the investigation.
The victim’s family paints a very different picture of his relationship with their deceased loved one.
“She’s been getting away from him. She’s been telling the family he’s stalking her,” her cousin, Tasha McCoy, said. “He just wouldn’t leave her alone.”
Family members showed ABC13 inside the apartment and the six bullet holes in the walls of the bathroom. Relatives said in their opinion, that Wolfe made up the story about the intruder as a coverup.
“He should be in jail,” another cousin, Travis McCoy, said. “You didn’t have to go to this extent, and then you lie about it, and cover it up. It just doesn’t make sense.”
Wolfe, who is from Houston, played defensive back for Arizona in 2019. He made six tackles that season as a freshman and did not appear in any games the following seasons before leaving the roster prior to the 2021 season.
