A Pennsylvania woman allegedly shot and killed her husband while he was teaching her to use a gun for the first time as they were drinking in their home.
“I shot him,” Michele Wanko, 42, reportedly said to police, who found 43-year-old William Wanko lying in the hallway entrance with an apparent gunshot wound to the upper chest, just below the Adam’s apple
The couple had been drinking vodka and lemonade since about 9 p.m. Friday when she asked him to show her “how to shoot a handgun in case someone attempted to break into the house.”
The husband removed several handguns from a safe and began showing his wife how to “clear a gun to make sure it was safe.” She picked up an XD9 semiautomatic handgun and racked the slide while pointing the gun at her husband.
The gun fired.
She said was not sure if she was squeezing the trigger as she racked the slide or if she pulled the trigger afterward..
