— Garner police charged a woman with first-degree murder Saturday after she called 911 at about 1 a.m. and said she had shot her husband during an argument. 

Ruby Ashworth Gonzalez, 59, shot Abundio G. Gonzalez, 48, in their camper parked behind Staples at 1411 Garner Station Blvd., according to police.

The couple had been living in the RV in various locations throughout the Wake County area.

"This shooting was as a result of a domestic-related argument which involved another female," Sgt. Chris Clayton said in a statement.

Abundio Gonzalez died from a single gunshot wound to the chest, police said.

Ruby Gonzalez was taken into custody at the scene without incident. She was being held without bond at the Wake County jail and is due in court Tuesday.

"Police do not anticipate any charges against the other female or any other persons in this case," Clayton said.
