Parker County man shoots wife during argument over finances

The Parker County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting that occurred Wednesday afternoon around 4:00pm in the 1500 block of Midway Drive.

Parker County sheriffs were called to the Poolville-area home after a man called 9-1-1 to report he had shot his wife during an argument.

Deputies found the 47-year-old man sitting on his porch wielding a shotgun. He was taken into custody without incident. They also located his 55-year-old wife who had sustained a gunshot to her side. Parker County ESD 1 and PCHD EMS were called for medical assistance. She was transported to a Fort Worth hospital.

A preliminary investigation reveals the couple was having an argument over finances when the man grabbed a gun and shot her.

The suspect has been charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.
