NEW YORK -- A 72-year-old New York man allegedly shot his 28-year-old wife in the face Thursday morning during a fight at their New York apartment, police told WPIX.

Officers responded to the home on Glebe Avenue around 8:30 a.m. Thursday after a neighbor overheard the couple screaming.

"They were arguing (outside) but then he went inside and she followed him," the neighbor told WPIX.
