The victim told police he had been in another apartment with friends and when he returned to his apartment he found Shepherd being very loud while having sex with a 39-year-old homeless woman, according to the report. The victim told police he waited outside and smoked a cigarette before he walked back to the apartment.

The man said once inside the apartment the couple continued to be loud so he yelled for them to be quiet, according to the report. The man said Shepherd jumped up and stabbed him in the hand before he ran out of the apartment to get help from a neighbor.
