Prosecutors said charges won’t be filed against the woman who wounded her estranged husband after he allegedly fatally shot her father then came after her with a gun.
State police said Shaun Fairman, 32, charged the North Mahoning Township, Indiana County home early Sunday morning looking for his wife, Jessica.
Investigators said Fairman was armed with a rifle and a handgun.
According to police, Fairman shot 55-year-old Richard Shotts when he tried to intervene in a dispute between Fairman and Shotts' daughter, Jessica Fairman.
Police said after shooting Shotts through the window, Fairman entered the home to search for his wife.
"The accused then entered the house through a broken window and attempted to go up the steps to, assuming, confront his wife. That's when she was up there and she shot him," said Lt. Bernard Petrovsky.
Officers said Fairman's wife shot him in the shoulder. He was taken to an area hospital and later arrested and charged with criminal homicide.
“As soon as she observed Shaun, she fired three shots and hit him twice in the shoulder area. Then she held him at bay with her revolver,” Petrovsky said.
Jessica Fairman’s two children and her mother were hiding in the attic, officials said.
Channel 11 News has learned that Jessica Fairman had a restraining order against her husband and filed for divorce on Saturday.
Fairman is facing several charges, including criminal homicide.
