A North Carolina man tried to surprise his wife with breakfast in bed, but he wound up surprising her so much that she shot him, reports WTVR. Police say that Zia Segule, 28, left their Fayetteville home about 10am yesterday, picked up some breakfast, and then returned. In doing so, he triggered the house alarm. When he got to the couple's bedroom, wife Tiffany, 27, shot him through the closed door, reports the Fayetteville Observer. He was struck in the upper chest, but, luckily, escaped serious injury. No charges are being filed.
"She woke up to the sound of the alarm, she got a handgun, and then she fired through the bedroom door," says a police spokesman. "She reasonably believed there was an intruder."

Are we sure it was a mistake? The husband may have to wonder about that for years, and will be more likely to do his chores.
“”She reasonably believed there was an intruder.””
hmmm. Alarm sounds, husband not in bed, shoot through closed door. more to the story.
No good deed goes unpunished.
Shot in the chest with no serious injury. .22?
He thought she was lazy for sleeping in, and figured the alarm would wake her up? Otherwise, he would have stopped and shut it off before it went off, or at least before he went upstairs.
Perhaps he (and the cops) is more gullible than I am.
Should’ve made a home cooked meal.
I said No Sprinkles.
For every sprinkle I find, I shall kill you.
You NEVER fire through a closed door!
Wondering if she’d been following that story about that guy who shot his gf through the bathroom door ...
Could have zipped through the rib cage at a shallow angle
Shooting through the door? Isn’t that from the Joe Biden School of Defensive Firearms Use?
Contrast that with George Zimmerman reasonably believing Trayvon Martin was trying to murder him because he was sitting on top of him and bashing his head into the concrete sidewalk while telling him he was going to kill him.
See why understanding law is so hard? It's these slender threads of almost indistinguishable differences between virtually identical cases that are so hard to detect.
In before the “She used a bigger gun” or “Needs more time at the range” FReeper knee-jerk posts.
Few truer words ever spoken!
Soldier, Ft. Bragg trying to surprise his wife who apparenlty had thought he
had left for work. What I don’t understand is why he didn’t disable the alarm
system when he returned.
Oh come on...That would take all the fun and surprise out of it.
Left 4 Dead: “you startled the witch!”
On the other hand he might have just earned the Grand-Daddy of all kitchen passes!
I have those door alarms. If one goes off the first thing I do is check to see if my wife is in bed because she is always forgetting about them. If my wife is in bed I get the gun and move myself and my wife into a safe location where I can see the bedroom door. We have told my daughter to call ahead if she was coming over but I would not bet her life on her failure to do so. I’m then yelling that whoever is out there better identify themselves immediately.
