NC Woman Shoots Husband in School Parking Lot in Front of Kids

STATESVILLE, N.C. (AP) – North Carolina authorities say a woman shot her husband in front of two children inside a pickup truck outside an elementary school.

Iredell County Chief Deputy Marty Byers says the shooting happened about 3 p.m. Tuesday at Central Elementary School near Statesville.

Byers said the man was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, but he did not know his condition. He said the woman was taken into custody and was being questioned.

Byers said one of the two children in the truck at the time of the shooting went inside to tell school personnel what happened. Local news media reported that the woman also went inside to tell them and brought the second child with her. Police did not release the children’s ages or the identities of the husband and wife.
