A woman has been arrested for shooting her boyfriend in the head after he gave her nothing for Christmas and complained about the present she gave him, police said.

Calvin Davis was in critical condition today at John Peter Smith Hospital, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Police did not release the identity of the 20-year-old woman, who was being held for investigation of attempted murder.

Davis, 30, and the woman argued Thursday after he complained about the gift she bought him, homicide Detective Larry Steffler said. Steffler said she told him her boyfriend had not given her anything.

"He wasn't pleased with his Christmas present, (and) it escalated from there," Steffler said. "He wouldn't leave when she asked him to leave, so she went and got her gun and shot him in the head."
