On Friday, December 30th, around 10 P.M., deputies from Pueblo County’s Sheriff’s Office responded to a call about a shooting. When they arrived to the home of Eric Bramschreiber, they discovered his wife with a gunshot wound to her leg, Law And Crime reported. She was then taken to a nearby hospital by medical personnel, and is expected to fully recover from her injuries.
In an interview with police, the victim claims that she was waiting for her husband, who had gone inside their trailer to grab something before heading to their next destination. Thirty minutes later, when he hadn’t returned, Mrs. Bramschreiber began honking the truck’s horn.
“A witness said when Bramschreiber heard the horn honking, he went outside the trailer and fired three shots from a handgun,” the police documents stated. “One of the gunshots struck the victim in the leg.”
Bramschreiber initially denied shooting his wife, claiming that he didn’t own firearms. After executing a search warrant, deputies discovered two handguns and casings outside of the trailers. The suspect was then arrested and charged with illegal discharge of a firearm, second-degree assault, and felony menacing. Bramschreiber is being held on a $50,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on January 12th.
