[OH] Denae shot her police officer husband

On Sunday Trotwood Ohio Police Officer Troy Dexter ran from his home, shot twice, to the fire department to call 911.
News Excerpts from today and yesterday: ..."I've got a gun in my hand. Smith & Wesson," Dexter told a 911 dispatcher. "I fought her for the gun. We're going through a divorce. She knew there was somebody else. She asked me to sit down and she shot me in the ribs and in the collar bone. Please hurry up"... When a 911 dispatcher asked Denae Barnett-Dexter why she shot her husband, the 34-year-old mother of two, said, "Because he's trying to divorce me"... Barnett-Dexter shot her husband with a handgun she had purchased about one week ago... Barnett-Dexter fired more than two shots, but he declined to reveal exactly how many. She confessed... The Montgomery County Prosecutor's office has approved two counts of felonious assault...

Trotwood Public Safety Director [POLICE CHIEF/ FIRE CHIEF / DEPUTY CITY MANAGER] Mike Etter: "I think it really brings to life domestic violence and nobody is immune to it."
