Aiken County authorities said a man was attacking a woman Sunday evening when he was shot by her husband.

According to an incident report, Corey Logan Solomon, 21, of Gregg Avenue in Aiken, was at the home of 32-year-old Nicholas Eugene Cribb on the 400 block of Gooseneck Road about 10 p.m. when he became irate and started shoving Cribb’s wife, Erica.

Authorities said Cribb had picked Solomon up after a DUI arrest. The report did not indicate how long Solomon was jailed on the DUI charge.

Cribb punched Solomon in the face after Solomon shoved his wife.

Solomon then threw the woman to the ground and began choking her. Police said Cribb got a revolver and shot Solomon in the leg inside the home. Solomon was still choking the woman when he was shot.

When deputies arrived they found Solomon lying next to his vehicle. Witnesses told authorities they believe he tried to get a gun from the vehicle. He was taken to Medical College of Georgia Hospital.

No arrests have been made.

Solomon’s and Cribb’s guns have been confiscated. Police said Cribb’s gun was stolen from Richland County, S.C.

Been Choking My Wife

He would never have been able to crawl to the car after he was shot. A closed casket funeral would be a guarantee.

he may not have known it was

he may not have known it was stolen. esp. if it was a person to person purchase. thankfully he's innocent until proven guilty. at least, I think thats how things still work in America. maybe just not the court of public opinion (district 11)

Not quite the same.

We love stories where a permitted resident uses a legally purchased weapon to defend himself, his family, or his property.

A story about someone who uses a stolen gun to shoot an acquaintance who he just picked up from the jail and brought to his house just isn't quite as satifying for some reason.
