A soldier was shot by his wife near breakfast time this week. Who wants gunfire while delivering the first meal of the day? Tiffany Segule woke up early in the morning after hearing the house alarm; her husband, a soldier, was going to surprise her with breakfast in bed. Police are examining the case. Yet the New York Daily News reports this Sunday, Jan. 11, 2015, that Segule thought her spouse was an intruder, and ended up mistakenly shooting him in the chest through the door.
A number of factors seemed to lead up to this accidental shooting. A soldier wife breakfast scare went down when 27-year-old Tiffany Segule of North Carolina accidentally fired a gun at her own husband, clipping him in the chest. The wife said she had heard the house alarm suddenly blare and after hearing footsteps outside her room, decided to open fire at the stranger.
The identity of that stranger was in fact her husband, who had come back home from work early. The mistaken incident occurred on Friday morning, says Gawker News. Tiffany decided to sleep in a little bit after her husband, a US soldier, left early that morning to go to work at Fort Bragg. It seems her husband however had a breakfast in bed surprise planned later that day. Unfortunately, his gift for his wife ended up with a side of gunfire for him.
An advanced burglar alarm connected to the home went off shortly before 10:30 am that same morning. Moments later, 28-year-old Zia Segule was coming in to bring his wife some breakfast and offer her a way to brighten her day. Yet Tiffany was so startled that she grabbed a gun from the dresser and shot her husband through the bedroom door.
Police relayed in their examination of the accidental shooting that Tiffany’s story checked out. Media outlets tried to get in contact with Zia later that day for a comment from him on what had occurred in the mistaken identity incident. The soldier did not seem very open to talking with the press, only remarking, “I’m good.” It sounds like both his body and his pride may have been slightly injured.
Reports reveal in this “soldier wife breakfast” shooting story that Mrs. Segule had been on high alert because there had been a number of break-ins throughout her neighborhood recently. When the alarm went off, she believed someone was trying to illegally enter the home. Mr. Segule was taken to a local hospital and was treated for a chest wound. Though bloody, it was not life-threatening and he was later released from the medical center. His wife is being examined by local police, but it appears this accident was one breakfast in bed surprise that went sour quickly.
