The semi new police chief of Peachtree City, ( a nice community in GA, lived next store at one time) has shot his wife. She is in critical condition. She has not spoken to authorities yet. He says it was an accident yet it is being investigated till all facts are in.

Not a great start for the new year.

My only question-- This happened at 4am, what was he doing with his gun out?

We will follow.
Best wishes to the victim.

Fair Use

But on the first day of 2015, the town of 35,000 people south of Atlanta was known for something else.

The man tasked with keeping the peace in Peachtree City, Police Chief William McCollom, was being investigated in a shooting that left his wife in critical condition.

Authorities aren't revealing many details, but they said McCollom shot Margaret McCollom with his service Glock 9mm a few hours before dawn inside the couple's bedroom.

The chief told 911 it was an accident, said Sherry Lang, spokeswoman for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

No charges have been filed.

Margaret McCollom was taken by helicopter to Atlanta Medical Center, where she was listed in critical condition, according to a statement from police spokesman Lt. Mark Brown.

Fayette County District Attorney Scott Ballard said at a press conference that he won't decide whether charges should be filed until the GBI presents him with an investigation

Why cant they say if he was drinking or not?
So far, no charges have been filed.

The wife has not been interviewed yet. She may still be critical.
Mark my words-- either way, she defends him. I didn't say it wasn't an accident but feel she wont turn on him if it wasn't. Just my jaded opinion.

Happy New Year All

Fayette County District Attorney Scott Ballard said at a press conference that he won't decide whether charges should be filed until the GBI presents him with an investigation report.

"We have no leanings one way or the other at this point because we just don't know," Ballard said. "As soon as all the facts are known they'll turn over a file to our office, and we'll review to see if in fact there's been any criminal activity."

McCollom is fully cooperating with authorities, Lang said. He's the one who called 911. Margaret McCollom has not been interviewed, she said.

Chief McCollom was placed on administrative leave.

Lang declined to comment when asked whether alcohol played a part in the incident, saying that's part of the investigation that cannot be revealed yet.

Why did he have his gun in bed?

Still my Question..

Wife not interviewed yet, still not well enough if she makes it.

I don't have good feelings, maybe it is me.

Charges not filed to date.

From CNN:

NOTE: Cnn has a new site, upgraded. It sucks. All in big letters. I have no idea who decided to do this but I hope someone changes it back. It is hard to read.

The chiefs wife has spoken and she says she was asleep when he shot her. She says she believes it was an accident.
I'm glad she thinks it was... I am so jaded!

She has been improving and is now in fair condition.

Best wishes.
