A man was fatally shot Monday afternoon and his wife was in custody, Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said.

Fowler said the shooting was reported about 3:15 p.m. at a residence in the 3000 block of Dusk Drive. The street is off Farm Road 920 northwest of Weatherford.

He declined to release the names of the couple until after relatives were notified.

When asked if he knew a motive, the sheriff said, “I think there has been some dissension in that family for quite some time, according to some sources.”

No further information was available Monday evening.
