RICHMOND COUNTY, Ga. (WRDW) -- Richmond County Deputies are investigating a shooting on Old Waynesboro Road across from Cross Creek High School.

They were called to the scene just after 2 a.m.

Investigators believe that the couple living inside the home got in to some sort of verbal argument. During that argument, 70-year-old Annie Gaines retrieved a handgun and shot her 74-year-old husband.

He was taken to GRU medical center with a gunshot wound to the thigh.

Those injuries are not life threatening according to the sheriff's office.

Annie Gaines is in custody and charged with aggravated assault and possession of firearm during the commission of a crime.
