Jacob Lee Edwards of Chesterfield, Virginia was shot this past week by his wife after physically assaulting her. Neighbors on what is described as a quiet cul-de-sac were on their way to church last Sunday when they found Edwards laying on his front lawn with a gun shot wound to his chest. Keat Powell who lives across the street stated: “it’s not something you expect on a Sunday morning. You’re headed out for church and you just hear a man calling for you from across the street who’s been shot. You certainly don’t see that everyday.”
Jacob Lee Edwards’ wife who was home at the time with her two teenage sons was not charged in the shooting as police found her to be acting in self defense. Edwards who is recovering from the shooting is facing charges of domestic assault and battery.
