Stuff like this is why I hate surprises. Chalk this one up to the hashtag #FunWithGuns.

Fox 11 in Raleigh, NC reports on this tale from the weekend of why communication in marriage is important:

A Fort Bragg soldier was shot in the chest Friday morning after his wife thought he was a home intruder.

"She was doing what she felt was right and to defend herself at that time," said Detective Antoine Kincade, a spokesman with the Fayetteville Police Department.

Fayetteville Police say Zia Segule, 28, left for work. His wife, 27-year-old Tiffany Segule, set the home alarm system. Zia Segule returned to the home unannounced to surprise his wife with breakfast. The alarm sounded and Tiffany Segule, who had gotten back in the bed, shot her husband in the chest through their closed bedroom door. Police said her husband had entered through the front door, but it's unclear whether he ever announced himself or tried to turn off the alarm.

Zia Segule was able to walk and talk following the shooting, said police. He has been released from Cape Fear Valley Medical Center. He declined to speak in detail with media when he returned home early Friday afternoon, but said "I'm good."

Indeed. I'm hoping the soldier (who probably never got shot at wherever he was platooned) isn't married to someone just looking for a reason to get a quickie divorce by firearm.
