(KMOV) – A Jefferson County man was shot in the leg Tuesday evening during a verbal domestic dispute between the man and his wife.
According to officials, the woman threatened to kill herself and grabbed a loaded pistol. When the man tried to take the gun away, it discharged and struck him in the upper left leg.
Authorities say he was conscious at the scene, but was airlifted to a hospital because of the location of the wound.
It is unclear at this point if anyone will face charges in this case.
