'There were 7 bullet holes in my house': Girlfriend of man shot outside home speaks out

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. -

The search for a murderer continues Thursday after a Spokane dad was gunned down seconds after buckling his one month old baby into his car seat.

Kionte Bullard, 21, was always happy. His girlfriend, and mother of his new baby, said it was like love at first sight for the couple.

"He was polite," she said. "He had a big old goofy smile. Once he met me, he never left me alone."

The girlfriend is still terrified as Bullard's killer remains free. Because of that, we are not identifying her.

"There were seven bullet holes in my house."

Court documents show Bullard and a friend were involved in some sort of confrontation at a downtown bar early Sunday. They left so Bullard could get his girlfriend and baby from her mother's home on N Nelson in Hillyard. Records show as he was loading them into the SUV, several shots were fired from a car. Bullard was shot multiple times. Miraculously, no one else was hurt.

His girlfriend said all he wanted to do was be a loving father.

"He was a really good dad," she said.

She says she's hopeful her boyfriend's killer will do what's right and confess.

"I want them to turn themselves in," she said. "It never should have ended like this."
