PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — A Palm Beach County woman was arrested Monday after investigators said she shot her husband multiple times.

Deputies said they responded to a shooting at 4:18 p.m. at a home located in the 4500 block of Hunting Trail in suburban Lake Worth Beach.

Officials later identified the wife as Lisa F. Shannon, 55.

A detective who arrived on scene shortly after the shooting said the victim told him, "she shot me, we (sic) going through a divorce and she shot me."

Shannon's husband was transported to a local hospital where he was last listed in critical condition.

Lisa Shannon told investigators she has been married to her husband since 2001 and accused him of being controlling, manipulative and angry toward her, according to a probable cause affidavit.

She said they have had financial problems for the past eight years, were in the process of divorcing, and needed to finish tax paperwork, a detective's report said.

She said when her husband showed up to finish the taxes they got into a heated argument and he antagonized her and at one point chest bumped her, the affidavit said.

Lisa Shannon said she eventually picked up a gun she had for protection and told her husband to leave, the report stated.

She said she "snapped" and shot her husband when he told her to fix the air conditioning before selling the home so he could get his portion of the house, the detective noted in his report.

"I know I shot him more than once, multiple times," the detective quoted Lisa Shannon as saying during her interview. She also said at no other time during their argument did they have a physical confrontation.

Investigators said neighbors who were interviewed after the incident said they had witnessed several domestic incidents between Lisa and her husband.

Lisa Shannon faces a charge of attempted first-degree murder.

Investigators said they recovered a .38 Special Smith and Wesson revolver from the scene and all five round were spent inside the weapon.
