PHOENIX (AP) — Police in Phoenix say a woman has been arrested in connection with the shooting of her husband, who later died.

They say 33-year-old Samone Lomax has been booked into a Maricopa County jail on suspicion of murder.

It was unclear Tuesday if Lomax has a lawyer yet who can speak on her behalf.

Police say a 37-year-old man called 911 around 4 p.m. Monday to report that his wife allegedly had shot him.

Officers responded to the scene and found the man with a gunshot wound at the couple's west Phoenix home.

He was taken to the hospital where he later died.

A possible motive for the shooting was unclear and the man's name wasn't immediately released.
