MODESTO, CA - A woman was shot and killed during a fight with her husband Sunday afternoon.
The victim's daughter called 911 around 4:45 p.m. to report the fight and get help, Modesto police Lt. Ron Cloward said.
Witnesses heard a shot as police headed to a home on the 3300 block of Creek Bed Court in northeast Modesto. A firefighter, who lived in the area, detained the husband, later identified as 53-year-old Mitchell Joseph Acevedo, until police arrived on scene, Cloward said.
When officers arrived on scene they found Acevedo's wife, 60-year-old Sharon Lorraine Acevedo, with at least one gunshot wound.
Mitchell Acevedo was immediately arrested. His wife later died at the hospital, Cloward said.
