Accident?

Soldier Surprises Wife With Romantic Breakfast, She Surprises Him Back By Shooting Him

Quote:
A solider at Fort Bragg in Fayetteville, North Carolina, tried to bring his wife a surprise breakfast in bed Friday morning, but as his reward for the romantic gesture, he found himself in the hospital with a gunshot wound to the chest. Police believe the shooting was simply a mistake, but they continue to investigate the circumstances of the shooting.

That would only be relevant if the shooter were white.

I have no problem believing it was an unintentional shooting. It's a high crime area, and she was woken from her sleep by her alarm system going off. Granted, he should have announced himself, and she should have waited to identify her target, but I can see why she reacted the way she did.

Why is it only "simply a mistake" the woman does. A man is immediately a suspect and arrested.

Not true. That chief of police who shot his ex-wife "accidentally" was not immediately arrested.

This would've made for a much better ending to American Sniper.
