It may be time to call a divorce lawyer.

An off-duty Chicago police officer allegedly shot her husband in their home in the 11600 block of South Elizabeth Street around 1:30 a.m. Friday,  the Chicago Tribune reports.

It started when the husband pulled a fire arm and aimed it at his wife's male friend. The husband allegedly fired but missed him,  according to a police statement

His wife quickly retaliated.

She grabbed her weapon and shot the man she vowed to spend the rest of her life with for better or worse.

The man was taken to the hospital in unknown condition, but officers said he's suffering from non-life threatening injuries.

The Independent Police Review Authority is investigating.

It appears this couple took the phrase "till death do us part" seriously.
