Christopher Baker, 21, is accused of firing multiple gunshots from a pick-up truck at the alleged victim’s father’s house at 3165 Shadow Lake Road. Baker is also accused of vandalizing her car and sending threatening text messages to her current boyfriend. The alleged victim showed Snapchat messages received earlier from Christopher towards her current boyfriend Joshua. “One of the messages from Christopher said ‘Your dead. Like actually.’ Baker pleaded not guilty in Court on Thursday to misdemeanor charges of domestic assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace by phone and a felony charge of unlawful mischief. According to court documents, the alleged victim, and her boyfriend, Joshua Delabruere, 23, began driving to her residence on Shadow Lake Road in Concord on Tuesday night. She stated “Shortly after, they were being tailgated by what they believed to be a Dodge Ram. They stated that this truck tried to run them off of the road. She said that they didn’t stop at her house because they knew Christopher to carry a firearm. They then drove to her father’s house just down the road for safety reasons. “They said they drove up the driveway around the back of the house to park their vehicle and as they entered the house, they heard between 8-10 gunshots that sounded like it came from the end of the driveway… She said that shortly after, the vehicle drove back in front of the residence and shot 3-4 more shots. Police said the alleged victim’s car was vandalized in her driveway on Shadow Lake Road and that all of the tires were slashed. The car was also keyed all around. Baker was led away in handcuffs after members of the State Police Tactical Services Unit rolled into St. J.
