Shortly after midnight in the early morning hours of Sunday, Feb. 28, Kevin Harrison called 911 stating his wife was accidentally shot at their residence at 763 Moss Side Drive in Bethlehem. Deputies arrived on the scene within four minutes and secured the residence.

Based on the interviews, the evidence from the crime scene, and the statements of the suspect, it was clear this was no accidental shooting.
