Husband Fatally Shoots Wife At Doctor’s Office
The woman ran into a doctor’s office begging them to call police before her husband acted.
The couple lived near the doctor’s office, and the woman apparently fled there from their home in small-town Jemison because it was the closest place to go, police chief Shane Fulmer said. He did not release the couple’s names.
“The first thing she said when she came in was, `Call the police,'” Fulmer said. He said six to seven people – all employees, including the doctor – were in the office at the time.
Her husband followed her in and shot her, then returned home, Fulmer said. There, police talked to him over the phone and a loudspeaker. Police didn’t shoot any bullets but fired tear gas into the home, Fulmer said. The man came outside and had a gunshot wound to the head. Fulmer called it self-inflicted but said police didn’t know exactly when it happened.
The man was taken to a hospital and will be charged, Fulmer said.
