    If this guy had real gun training, he would have hit his mark, the woman would be dead and he would be up for murder. (phew) So, what will she say when she runs into his family members at the store? That will be awkward.

    domestic violence? sounds more like attempted murder, wouldnt you think? Several shots with some of them hitting an occupied car. Think an upgrade in charges is warranted.
