Woman shot, man injured in domestic dispute

Wichita police are investigating a domestic violence disturbance that occurred Tuesday night in the 500 block of North Spruce.

Sgt. Jeff Davis said a 76-year-old man asked his 52-year-old girlfriend and roommate to move out. She poured bleach on him, a police report said, and then sprayed him with Mace. As she began hitting him with a frying pan, he pulled out a .38 revolver and shot her twice in the left shoulder.

Emergency workers transported both of them to Wesley Medical Center.

Doctors treated and released the man; the woman is in serious condition, Davis said. Police did not arrest the man, Davis said, but expect to arrest the woman when she is out of the hospital.

“We think this was a situation of self-defense,” Davis said.
