    A woman shot her husband Thursday morning after the couple got into a fight over their tax return, police say.

    The shooting took place at about 7:30 a.m. at the couple's home in the 8800 block of Sharpview Drive.

    According to Fort Worth police, the woman said her husband has a violent history and that he charged at her during an argument, which prompted her to shoot him once in the abdomen. 

    The husband, who was conscious when he was transported to the hospital, told Fort Worth police that he had been shot but did not comment further.
