Michael Gilbert, separated from Michelle Gilbert for about two weeks, returned to his home in the 400 block of Flying Point Road from a trip to Virginia Tuesday morning, according to police reports. He was confronted by his wife and Duane John Sisson, 30, police said.

A brief argument ended when Mr. Sisson displayed a small-caliber handgun and ordered Mr. Gilbert to leave, police said.

Mr. Gilbert got a high-powered rifle from his vehicle, fired several shots at the house, then fled, police said.

One shot struck Mr. Sisson in the neck. Police said Mrs. Gilbert accidentally shot Mr. Sisson in the hip as they tried to escape from the house. Mrs. Gilbert was not charged.
