Mr. Butler and his girlfriend, Sara Heller, were sleeping in the bedroom of their apartment along with each of their one-year old daughters, when Onukwugha kicked in the front door of the apartment. Mr. Butler got up to see what had happened and was confronted by Onukwugha, who was armed with a pistol. Onukwugha struck Butler with the pistol as the victim (Butler) tried to defend himself. Butler bled profusely from his injury and as the two men struggled, Onukwugha also struck Heller. Onukwugha and Lopez then took the two children from the apartment.
