A Florida woman is accused of shooting her husband multiple times during an argument over how to file their taxes, authorities said.
Lisa F. Shannon, 55, was arrested Monday on a charge of attempted first-degree murder with a firearm, according to a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office arrest report.
The report said deputies responded to Shannon's Lake Worth home and found her husband, 61-year-old Ralph Shannon, lying in the driveway, bleeding profusely from multiple gunshot wounds.
"She shot me, [we're] going through a divorce and she shot me," Ralph Shannon told the deputies, before he was taken to a local hospital in critical condition, the report said.
Lisa Shannon told deputies that they have been married since 2001 but were in the process of getting a divorce and needed to fill out tax paperwork, the report said. Ralph Shannon had gone to the house to finalize the tax paperwork when they got into a heated argument.
"She stated that they were not in agreement on how to file for their taxes," the report said.
At one point, Ralph Shannon approached his wife and chest bumped her, and she pushed him away by the neck and face area, the report said. He started to gather his belongings and she armed herself with a revolver, then told him to leave and he refused, the report said.
Lisa Shannon told deputies she "snapped" and shot her husband multiple times, the report said. Two neighbors also told deputies they witnessed Lisa Shannon shoot her husband outside the home, the report said.
A revolver was recovered at the scene. Lisa Shannon was booked into jail, where she remained held without bond Tuesday, records showed. Attorney information wasn't available.
