Woman shot by husband
(2007-01-22)
(WOUB) - A Hocking County woman is in the hospital after being shot multiple times by her husband who later turned the gun on himself.

The sheriff's office responded to a call at 8:20 Sunday night regarding a man barricaded inside of his residence after shooting his wife.

The sheriff says Gary Champ shot Vickie Champ after drinking and arguing with her.

Even though she'd been shot, she was able to escape from the home on State Route 328 and call police from a neighbors house.

The Logan-Hocking Joint Special Response Team was called out and made entry into the residence of the barricaded suspect who was found dead from a shot to the head.
