GREENSBORO, North Carolina — Police say a 68-year-old man shot and killed by his former police officer wife also fired shots at her during their fight in their Greensboro home.

Investigators said Friday that both George Bishop III and his wife, Brenda, fired guns Wednesday during an argument. George Bishop died a short time later, while his wife was not hit.

Detectives are still trying to figure out exactly what happened and whether charges should be filed.

Bishop's wife called 911 around 1:10 p.m. Wednesday and told the operator her husband gave her a 1 o'clock deadline. She said she shot him after he fired at her.

Police say they had never been called to the couple's home before.

Authorities say Brenda Bishop is a 70-year-old former Greensboro Police lieutenant and retired in 1998.
