A 47-year-old woman from the US has been arrested after shooting her boyfriend in the armpit over his loud snoring.
Lorie Morin, who lives in Florida, has been charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery.
According to DailyMail, the lady’s lover, Brett Allgood, had to be airlifted to hospital at 10pm.
When an emergency response team was dispatched, they found the man lying on the ground with blood spilled all over the floor.
The incident which took place on Wednesday, March 13, was first termed as an accident before Brett spilled the beans and told authorities his snoring angered his lover.
It is understood Lorie first told the police she was intoxicated before the shooting and accidentally pulled the trigger while she tried to reach for a heavy box.
However, Brett who is now in stable condition, begged to differ and said his partner shot him purposefully.
According to the victim, an angry Lorie went into the bedroom where her boyfriend was and first pointed the gun at his head.
“He heard a loud boom and woke up lying in a pool of blood with excruciating pain coming from his right armpit area,” the arrest affidavit explained.
Authorities then decided to grill Lorie again and this time round, she claimed Brett tried to snatch the gun away from her prompting Lorie to pull the trigger.

“It should be noted that while Ms. Morin was in the interview room, she attempted to show emotion by covering her face with her hands and crying, but she never shed a tear the entire time during any of the interviews,” the affidavit said.
