Guns Are Bad News for Women - With a Twist

Posted on the 21 April 2011 by Mikeb302000
Mercury news reports on a different version of the famous old scene.

A man is in surgery and a woman is in custody after she shot him and then surrendered at a West Oakland church, police said. 
The names of the victim and the suspect were not released. 
The man was undergoing surgery late Tuesday after being shot three times, police said. Police said he is expected to live. 
The shooting happened about 7 p.m. in the parking lot of a convenience store at 889 Grand Ave. in West Oakland. A short time after the shooting, which drew a crowd large enough that extra officers were called for crowd control, the woman surrendered at a Athens Street church, police said. 
The motive in the shooting was a domestic dispute, police said. The woman was reportedly heard yelling at the man about alleged physical abuse before the shooting.
