SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. (KGUN9-TV) - A 44-year-old woman was arrested for the attempted murder of her husband Wednesday after she tried to shoot him.

Cpl. Scott Borgstadt with the Sierra Vista Police Department tells KGUN9 that officers responded to the 600 block of south First Street Wednesday.

When they arrived, they learned that Beate Alexandra Bohan, 44, was arguing with her husband over a pending divorce when she went to the bedroom, got a gun, and fired one shot at her husband.

He was not injured and was able to wrestle the gun away from her and call police.

She was charged with Domestic Violence Attempted First Degree Murder and booked into the Cochise County Jail.
