Husband Shoots Wife in Russellville, AR

An Arkansas woman is in intensive care in a Little Rock hospital today after her husband shot her 3 times outside of a friend's apartment in Russellville yesterday.

Police say 38 year old James Thompson drove to the residence and asked his wife, 33 year old Rachel Thompson, if she would go out to his car so he could give her clothes for their 2 children.

However, instead of pulling clothes out of his trunk, he took out an assault rifle and shot his wife twice.

Then he fired a third shot as she laid on the ground in the parking lot.

Thompson then left in his car and was later captured and charged of criminal attempt to commit capital murder.

Mrs. Thompson underwent emergency surgery yesterday.
