Police are questioning a man at first thought to be her husband, but who they later said may not be married to her, although the two are involved and lived together at the home. He is said to be cooperating with the investigation.
Police were called to the home shortly after 5 a.m. where the man who fired the shots told them that he had mistaken her for a burglar and shot her by mistake.
One neighbor has suggested that there may be more to the shooting than an accident.
“I’m not surprised,” neighbor Lisa Turner told a reporter, “There’s just a lot of action and traffic at that location, and you know, there’s things that you hear, there’s things that you see, you know and it’s not surprising at all.”
The investigation is ongoing with police talking to the shooter and neighbors.
