Man thought he was shooting burglar, shoots wife instead

A Lawton, Oklahoma man saw a shadowy figure standing in his bedroom so he grabbed his 30 caliber rifle and fired. The intruder turned out to be his wife who was returning from going to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

The woman was shot in the shoulder. She was taken to a nearby medical center for treatment.

The man told police that they had been dealing with burglars recently and he thought he was shooting an intruder. Police say it appears to be an accidental shooting.

Big difference between burglars and intruders.
