The suspected shooter claims it was accident when the gun fired, shooting her husband in the chest this past Saturday.

Miami police were called to the couple's home around 10 a.m. a domestic dispute and shooting.

When they arrived the authorities found John Allen Largent dead with a gunshot to the chest.

The police chief says there is no recorded history of domestic violence between the Largents, but neighbors say they've witnessed this couple having problems in the past.

An autopsy is underway while the investigation into what actually happened leading up to the shooting continues.
