Deputies said she and her husband had argued and the woman got a handgun. The couple then struggled for the firearm and it discharged, striking the man in the right calf, investigators say.

He was treated at Uintah Basin Medical Center and released.

The suspect was booked on suspicion of aggravated assault and released after posting $10,000 bail, jail records showed.
