“She appeared to be in shock,” Sorrell wrote.
Dawn Shearer told the officer multiple times that she wanted someone to go inside the home, that she didn’t know what had happened to her husband, and that she didn’t know “what she did,” according to the report.
After Dawn Shearer was placed in a police cruiser, officers entered the house and found Anthony Shearer in the living room with a gunshot wound to the head.
He was transported to Atrium Medical Center, then taken to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton where he died Monday night, police said.
In a 911 call, Dawn Shearer confessed to the shooting.
“We were just arguing over stuff,” she told dispatchers as officers responded to the shooting. “We were married 20-something years. I moved back in to work things out. I think I shot him in the head.”
The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office is still performing an autopsy on Tony Shearer to determine the cause and manner of his death.
