LPD: Man shoots wife; claims he thought she was intruder

Posted: Updated:

Lawton-  An overnight shooting sent a Lawton woman to a hospital Tuesday morning. Police say her husband pulled the trigger.

Officers were called to a house near 7th and G Avenue at 3 a.m. on reports a 34-year-old woman was shot in the shoulder. Her husband was also there. They both tell police it was an accident. The husband claims he thought his wife was an intruder because they've been dealing with burglars. He told police he saw a shadowy figure standing in his bedroom so he fired a 30 caliber rifle before learning it was his wife.

We're told she's being treated at Southwestern Medical Center. The husband is at the police station for questioning.

We'll bring you more details as soon as they're released.
