PINE LAWN— A woman has been arrested in suburban St. Louis after shooting at her husband when he allegedly refused to give her some of their tax return money.
Pine Lawn police say the unidentified woman is being held on a $75,000 cash-only bond on suspicion of first-degree assault and armed criminal action. It was not immediately known whether she had an attorney.
Police say she followed her husband to work Saturday morning at a barber shop and fired when he refused to turn over any money. The bullets missed the husband.
Investigators say the woman then went to St. Louis and threw the gun in a sewer. She turned herself in after police contacted her.
Pine Lawn Assistant Police Chief Daniel O'Conner says the woman felt "more than justified" about the shooting.
