Zia later came back home to surprise his wife with breakfast. When he walked through the front door he triggered the home's alarm system.
The alarm woke Tiffany up and she grabbed a handgun that was near the bed. Thinking there was an intruder in the house Tiffany fired the gun through the closed bedroom door.
The bullet struck Zia in the chest. He was taken to the local medical center where he was listed in stable condition.
A neighbor said that while he understands how this can happen, "I wouldn't open fire just like that."
