Chesapeake, Va. - It was a domestic dispute that landed a man in the hospital and the mother of his children in custody after she shot him, according to Chesapeake Police.

It happened at an apartment complex on Border Road.

"They used to be in a romantic relationship, but they aren't anymore,” says Chesapeake Police Officer Leo Kosinski. “He used to live here but doesn't anymore."

The shooting happened just after 6 p.m. Monday. Police say the victim was already inside the woman's apartment when she came home and a fight broke out.

"Some type of altercation ensued between the two of them, which ended with her shooting him in the arm," Officer Kosinski says.

Police say the man is expected to be fine.

    WTKR, you guys do not have the Wordpess.com “Press This” on the Share buttons, and only have the Reblog button working. Could somebody look into that, please?
    Other news stations that blog have the same thing missing.
    Thank you.

        Okay, thank you. I have reblogged various networks that are on the WordPress.com platform, and with recent revisions at WordPress.com, on the regular blogs, there is a “Press This” button on the Share tabs. It effectively reduces the volume of troll traffic at the regular blogs therefore I was wondering and inquired.
        Thank you, once again.

    Why does he get to be in her home if he doesn’t belong there? I’m not saying that shooting him was okay but if I came home and someone was in my house that didn’t belong there I’d have a problem with it too.
