BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) — Bossier City police say a woman trying to avoid an Air Force deployment had her husband shoot her before lying to investigators that an intruder was to blame.

Police say 25-year-old Judy Groomes was treated for wounds on both of her legs from one round from a handgun fired by her husband, 26-year-old Christopher Tyquan Groomes. Both are active military based at nearby Barksdale Air Force Base.

Groomes allegedly claimed an intruder shot her early Friday while her husband and two children slept. But police say she convinced her husband to shoot her to avoid military service.

Christopher Groomes was arrested on a gun charge. Judy Groomes faces a criminal mischief charge for allegedly filing a false police report.

It was not immediately known if either had an attorney.
