An off-duty Philadelphia police officer shot and wounded her husband in the driveway of their Bucks County home early Tuesday, police said.


The shooting occurred about 5:30 a.m. on the unit block of Marmic Drive in the Holland section of Northampton Township, Northampton Police Chief Michael Clark said.

He said police received a report of a “domestic incident” at the house. The husband, who was shot in his lower abdomen area, was taken to St. Mary Medical Center in Langhorne, where he was in stable condition and is expected to survive, Clark said.


His wife was taken into custody and was being questioned by Northampton police and the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office, Clark said.

Clark declined to release either person’s names. He said both appear to be in their 30s.

Clark did not know yet if the off-duty officer will face charges. Her husband “just got out of surgery,” he said early Tuesday afternoon, and detectives have yet to speak to him.





The couple’s three children were in the home at the time of the shooting and were not injured. The Philadelphia officer allegedly used her personal gun, not her service weapon.

A Philadelphia police spokesman said he could not immediately release any information, but said the department planned to put out a statement later Tuesday.
