A Detroit woman named Airrion Wallace is lucky to be alive after her wife of 12 years shot her 11 times during an argument about infidelity in their marriage.
It all started when Wallace confronted her wife after discovering she committed adultery. She told her that they needed to file for divorce.
During their argument, Wallace threatened to bring another woman into their home so her wife could understand how it feels to be cheated on.
This upset Wallace’s wife as she brought a gun and shot her four times in the vagina, four times in the leg, and three times in the stomach.
However, Airrion who was in critical condition was taken to the hospital where she underwent emergency surgery and two blood transfusions.
Narrating what happened, Wallace said:
“I was telling her that we needed to get a divorce. Because I can handle a lot of things but I can’t handle infidelity. You made me uncomfortable at home, don’t be surprised if I have another female in here. I don’t know why I said that, and she said ‘You want to play with me?’ And looked at me and pulled out a gun.”
She added that she begged during the shooting, saying: “I’m like OK. OK, I hear you, I’m not going to do it”. And she kept going.”
She said she remaned conscious after the shooting and found a way to flee from her home.
“I had to gather as much strength as I could, to get down my stairs and get outside. As soon as I opened the door there were people out there. I said please call the police.”
Wallace’s wife was arrested and she told police she acted in self-defense.
She said: “She wanted me to die because she always felt if she can’t have me, no one could have me.”
The wife has not been formally charged.
