A Grady County woman is out on bond and her husband is recovering from a gunshot wound he suffered during an argument between the two last week, according to investigators. Crystal Sunshyne Jackson, 41, is charged with aggravated assault in the case, which is being investigated by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and Grady County Sheriff’s Office.
Jackson called 911 the afternoon of Sunday, Sept. 29, and said she had shot her husband. Authorities found the victim at the couple’s residence in the 200 block of Lake Douglas Road.
Due to the severity of his injuries, a helicopter landed next to the home and flew him to a Tallahassee hospital for treatment, according to Lt. Jake Bush, investigator with the Grady County Sheriff’s Office.
“If he had not been attended to, he would have died,” Lt. Bush says, explaining that the victim had been shot below the belt on his right side and was suffering from internal bleeding.
Jackson was taken into custody without incident, and a search warrant was executed at the home where law enforcement officers say they found the suspected weapon, a .22 caliber handgun. Bush says the couple had been arguing about infidelity.
Jackson was held at Grady Detention Center through Tuesday, Oct. 1 when she was released after posting bond, according to the Grady County Sheriff’s Office.
