Police arrested a Lincoln County woman Sunday and accused her of shooting and wounding her husband Friday evening during a domestic dispute at their home in Walpole, a village in South Bristol.

Angela Lemire, 39, was taken into custody in Brunswick by Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Detective Jared Mitkus. Police said Lemire was being held at the Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset on charges of domestic violence reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon and aggravated assault.

A statement posted Sunday on the Facebook page of the sheriff’s office said Lemire shot her husband with a handgun. Her husband’s name was not released.

The shooting happened at the couple’s home on Clark’s Cove Road around 7 p.m, police said. The victim was treated for non-life threating injuries at Miles Memorial Hospital in Damariscotta and Maine Medical Center in Portland and then released.

Because of the serious nature of the allegations, Lemire is being held without bail pending her initial court appearance this week.
