Cottondale Shooting Victim in Critical Condition

Police say it appears a love triangle was behind a weekend shooting in the Florida Panhandle.

A man and his estranged wife remain in a Dothan hospital after the Saturday night shooting.

Investigators tell News 4 that Paul Barber, Jr. had been visiting 45-year-old Felisia Shiver at her home in Cottondale.

That's when her estranged husband, jack shiver, reportedly kicked in the door.

Shiver reportedly shot his wife in the head with a handgun, and then Barber shot jack shiver with a shotgun.

One neighbor said the incident was a shock in the rural community.

"Nothing like this in our area…several months ago the sheriff's shooting incident was nearby. When I was told over the weekend about the shooting, I couldn't believe it happened," said Asa Ralls.

Jack Shiver is expected to survive and will face several charges stemming from the incident.

His wife is listed in critical condition.

    I think we need to do more,It seems people of the world today are geting crazier and crazier... Soon it's goneing to be where woman are not going to leave the abuseive husbands or what ever the reason may be,because of fear of them comeing after them and trying to kill them..I was in a abuseive relationship for eight years and I would never leave because my husband always told me that if I ever tried to leave he would send me back to my family in a body bag.. So your scared half to death and so you stay and put up with it...
