CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A 47-year-old woman has been charged after allegedly shooting a married couple in Clarksville, critically injuring the man.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said Barbara Cowdrey was taken into custody and charged with two counts of aggravated assault in the case.

The incident happened at 10:30 p.m. Tuesday near the intersection of Rossview Road and Guthrie Road.

The man was shot in the face and was in critical condition. He was later taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
