Investigators say husband accidentally shot wife

Posted: Updated:

ORANGE COUNTY, FL-- An Apopka woman is airlifted to the hospital after Orange County deputies say she was shot by her husband. Investigators say it was all an accident.

It happened earlier this evening in the 1200 block of Firefox Drive. Neighbors heard a loud boom coming from a home. Deputies say the husband was giving his rifle to a friend, he thought it was unloaded but it went off. The bullet ricochets from the wall and hit his wife in the shoulder. Neighbors became alarmed when they saw several deputies rush to the scene.

"I was a little worried. I can only hope for the best. I hate to think about what could've happened," said the neighbor across the street Jean Loveland.

We're told the wife is in stable condition and is expected to be ok. No charges were filed.
