Police said he told her multiple times she was going to die. Harrington then allegedly put the gun to her stomach and pulled the trigger but the gun didn't fire. After the gun didn't fire, police said Harrington ran off.

Harrington was charged with robbery, wanton endangerment, two counts of assault, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and terroristic threatening.
