A woman was taken to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center on Sunday night after she was shot by her husband.

Santa Fe police say the shooting was accidental.

Capt. George Ortiz said the man was handling a handgun in the kitchen of the family’s home on Calle Ensenada off Siringo Road near Santa Fe High School when there was “an accidental discharge.”

A bullet from the gun traveled through two walls in the family home and struck the woman in the upper arm. Ortiz was not sure whether it was the woman’s right or left arm, but he did say the woman was treated and released without life-threatening injuries.

Police say the couple have no history of domestic violence, and no charges will be filed.

    While appreciative of your site here, and the quality of your reporting and writing,
    I call; “Improper use of popular phrase in story headline”
    Where’s the shotgun? Where’s the wedding?

    More likely; “Husband’s fooling around gives wife shot-in the-arm towards getting that divorce”
