Police are accusing an elderly Williamson County man of shooting at his wife and then shooting himself.

The shooting happened shortly after 8 p.m. Saturday night at the couple's home on Bunker Hill Court.

Williamson County deputies, Tennessee Highway Patrol troopers, and a SWAT team responded to the 911 call.

The man was found in a bedroom with a self-inflicted gunshot wound and taken to Vanderbilt hospital.

His wife told deputies that she and her husband, who suffers from dementia, argued earlier that day.

Once he recovers, the man will be charged with aggravated domestic assault.
