A Windsor man is in trouble with the law after he shot his wife.

The shooting happened at Matthew Coleman's home on Union Street early Saturday morning. That's where police say Coleman attempted to show his wife that a 9-millimeter gun in the house was not loaded.

Police say Dorthea Coleman was conscious and alert when emergency personnel arrived and shared her husband's account of what happened.

Monday Matthew Coleman pleaded innocent to a misdemeanor count of simple assault with a deadly weapon.
