NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Police say a New Orleans woman fatally shot her husband after he allegedly tried to hit his family with his truck during a domestic dispute.

Officer Frank Robertson said Saturday that 50-year-old Steven Swanson died Friday at an area hospital shortly after being shot multiple times by his 40-year-old wife. NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports (https://bit.ly/1yDGI3a ) police responded shortly after 8 p.m. outside the couple’s eastern New Orleans home.

Investigators say Swanson and his wife were arguing and the man refused to let her leave. She told police that as she and her children moved to get into her car, Swanson “tried to hit them with his truck.” She says she then pulled a gun and fired at him in self-defense.

No arrests have been made. The incident remains under investigation.
