Man opens fire after waiting for wife to honk at him, Colorado sheriff says

A 55-year-old man faces charges of shooting his wife in the leg after she honked at him, Colorado officials have reported.

The Pueblo man had gone with his wife to a private home to discuss purchasing a vehicle Friday, Dec. 30, the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.

After the man was inside a trailer on the property for 30 minutes, his wife began honking his horn for him to get out, sheriff officials said.

The man came out with a pistol and fired three shots, the statement said. One of them shot the 56-year-old woman in the leg inside their truck.

She was treated and released to a hospital, sheriff’s officials said. The man denied firing a pistol, but deputies found two handguns and shell casings.

He was arrested for unlawful firearm discharge, second degree assault and felony threat. A 45-year-old woman in the trailer was also arrested for “five unrelated outstanding warrants”.

Pueblo is a city of 12,000 people located about 185 miles south of Denver.
