There was a shooting yesterday at 617 Black Street in Sioux City, Iowa.
The shooting happened at five p.m. yesterday. When Richard Brunson was arguing with his newly wedded wife, Laurette Brunson. He then shot his wife with a .22- calibre handgun in the abdomen.
The couple have been living together for five months before they were married. A neighbor called police when the gun shot went off. Neighbor Walter Corse had this to say, “I heard the sound of the shot or I think did. It kinda was a pop, pop, pop. And then the son came out yellin’. ‘She’s been shot and can’t breathe.'”
Richard was gone by the time helped arrived. Laurette was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital were she is in satisfactory condition.
