PIKEVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police say a woman has fatally shot her estranged husband after he allegedly threatened her.

Pamela Smith called dispatchers in Pike County early Monday to report the shooting.

Police said in a statement that the preliminary investigation indicates 37-year-old Terry Briggs went to Smith’s home, made entry into it and threatened her. Police say Smith, who was armed with a handgun, had an active domestic violence order against Briggs and shot him.

Pike County Deputy Coroner Ernie Casebolt pronounced Briggs dead at the scene.

Police say no charges have been filed, but the case will be presented to a grand jury for consideration.
