    Another spouse shooting - North Carolina this time

    I'm sure the guy did something at sometime to deserve getting shot in the chest ...

    A North Carolina woman accidentally shot her husband in the chest after he tried to surprise her with breakfast, according to authorities....Police said the injured husband was able to walk and talk after the shooting and has since been released from the hospital.

    " shot her husband in the chest through their closed bedroom door. "
    I am responsible for my writing, not your understanding of it.

    My wife and I often stay miles apart due to my work.
    She tried to 'surprise me' by coming in very quietly one night.
    Heard the door open, and someone moving around in the living room without turning on the light.
    Heard the individual trying to move quietly down the hall.
    Training kicked in.
    Identify the target was paramount.
    She didn't see the 1911 held low ready when the flashlight lit her up.
    But she was gently reminded that, while surprises are nice, sneaking into what should be an empty house in the middle of the night was not a bright move.
    She calls first now...........

    There's more to this story, I'm thinking. He did something that scared her, but then talked her out of pressing charges. I think he lived and was discharged from the hospital.

    We won't know what really happened.

    He's a soldier, went to work, and then sneaked back home to make his wife breakfast? Dunno how it is in today's Army, but that wouldn't have gone over too big back when I was in.
