Veteran shot by wife when he's mistaken for intruder (VIDEO)

One man is lucky to be alive after his wife, mistaking him for an intruder, shot him in the chest.

Zia Segule, who is stationed at Fort Bragg, had left his Fayetteville, North Carolina, home Friday morning around 10 a.m. to grab some breakfast for him and his wife. But when Segule returned, he tripped the security alarm. Segule’s wife, Tiffany, believing that someone had broken into the house, opened fire through the bedroom door when she heard someone in the house.

Unbeknown to her, her husband was on the other side of the door.

The gunfire, which caliber has not been disclosed, struck Zia in the chest, but he was treated and released from the hospital, all in the same day.

Following the incident, Zia said, “I’m good.”
