new castle, Pa.

A woman who was charged with shooting her husband tried to give police a toy gun when they asked her for her weapon, a magistrate’s report indicates.

Police arrested Billie Dawn Gallick, 66, who owns Billie Dawn’s Beauty Salon on New Wilmington Road, on Sunday afternoon at her home on Francis Place, the report says.

She is charged with attempted criminal homicide, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and simple assault. She is in Lawrence County Jail with bond set at $100,000.

Her preliminary hearing is set for 9 a.m. next Wednesday.

Police said they went to her house and found her husband, Bruce Gallick, with a gunshot wound to his arm.

Police said Billie Dawn Gallick was asked numerous times to produce the weapon she used and at one point gave them a toy gun.

Police eventually found the gun, a .22-caliber revolver, in a closet on the first floor.

According to the report, Gallick told police her husband had a girlfriend, and that seemed to be the main reason the shooting occurred. Police also said they smelled alcohol on her.

"Police also said they smelled alcohol on her."

I wonder if she was drinking malt liquor ? Shooting people is one of the known side effects .
