SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Police say Scottsdale woman shot her boyfriend multiple times while he slept because she believed he was having an affair.

A probable cause statement to arrest 53-year-old Delia Flores says she shot her live-in boyfriend while he slept in a chair on Sunday.

The boyfriend woke up to what he thought were fireworks but were actually seven gunshot wounds, including his groin area and neck. The victim is expected to survive.

The statement says Flores bought the gun a week earlier. Her boyfriend told police he didn’t know she had one and that he didn’t have an affair.

Flores faces charges of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated assault. She made her first appearance in court on Monday and has a preliminary hearing scheduled for March 8.
