College Park police are investigating the shooting death of a young woman in her home.

It happened Saturday night at The Diplomat Apartments off of Camp Creek Parkway. 

Police said 23-year-old Faith Bittinger was shot once in her chest. Her boyfriend Reginald Jones, who also lives in the apartment, was taken in for questioning. We've learned he admitted to shooting Bittinger, but told police it was an accident.

CBS46 spoke with one woman who said she saw the couple from time to time. She said Bittinger had only lived in the apartment for a few months and said there was a baby in the apartment as well.

"I can't believe this," Teresa Collier said. "There was only two of us in the neighborhood. I never heard a fight come from the apartment ever. There weren't very many feuds so I don’t understand."

Police aren’t buying the boyfriend’s story. The investigation continues and we've learned charges are pending.

Jones is expected to appear in court on July 24.

CBS46 will continue to follow this developing story.
