David J. Kramer, 47 of Metairie was arrested on Saturday morning after allegedly shooting his 53-year-old wife, Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office spokesman Col. John N. Fortunato said.
A woman called 911 reporting her mother was shot by her stepfather on the 4100 block of Clearview Parkway around 2:47 a.m. Saturday, Fortunato said.
First responders found the victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds on the bathroom floor and she was taken to a local hospital, Fortunato said.
She was treated for a gunshot wound to the arm and face, Fortunato said.
Investigators said the victim and Kramer were fighting before the witness heard the gunshot and later discovered her mother was shot, Fortunato said.
The incident is still under investigation.
