Police are investigating the relationship between Santiago and Pittman.

16-year-old Evalyce Santiago was shot and killed on December 4 by her 27-year-old boyfriend Dominique Pittman, police said.

Pittman then said Santiago had a knife, started yelling at him about borrowing money from him and him buying her a winter coat, then she started cutting store scan cards from his keys and took a gun from the console of his auto, the arrest warrant application said. She was pronounced dead at the scene, according to court documents. She had been shot prior to the crash. As they were fighting over the gun, it went off, and Pittman crashed the auto.

Driver Dominic Pittman, who was still in the vehicle, was taken to the hospital and later into custody on suspicion of murder.

Francisco Rivera, Santiago's grandfather who raised her, revealed Pittman and the victim's aunt had several children together, reported WFSB.

Reiterated Spagnolo, 'Something occurred throughout the night that created this tumultuous situation to the point where Pittman shot Santiago'.

Officers then confronted Pittman about the possibility of Santiago being pregnant and finding traces of his DNA and he admitted to having a sexual relationship with the teen until November, according to police paperwork. The age of consent in CT is 16, but it's unclear when their relationship began.

Police said that the suspect, who was driving the vehicle, opened fire before the crash, and escaped with only bumps and bruises.

Come Tuesday, Santiago's adoptive mother Wanda Plaza said that she was 'destroyed' from the news of her death.

Pittman, of Waterbury, is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday on murder and various weapon charges. Pittman is being held on $1 million bond for his murder and various weapons charges.
