Florida Man Mistakes Wife For Intruder, Shoots Her In The Face
A Florida man who reportedly thought he heard and saw an intruder Sunday morning at his Sebring, Florida home opened fire and hit the person, who turned out to be his 60-year-old wife.
According to the police, Eusebio Christian, 47, is cooperating with police inquiries into the matter. Christian’s wife, whose name is being withheld as a possible domestic violence victim, received one shot in her face, but it was not life-threatening, Carr said, according to the News-Sun.

Police were called in at about 6:42 a.m. on Sunday.
Police were told by Christian that he heard a noise and got out of bed to investigate. Christian said he thought someone was breaking in, due to previous suspicious incidents he’d reported to police, Carr said.
Christian told police he saw a figure standing in the kitchen and started shooting out of fear. It turned out to be his wife, according to the paper.
“Once he realized it was her, he stopped shooting,” Carr said. “All (shots) missed except one in the face.”
Christian’s wife is expected to recover. [su_csky_ad]
