The sheriff's office was called to the 1200 block of Baltic Lane after the 30-year-old woman called 911 and told dispatchers she shot the man in self-defense, according to Homicide Sgt. D. Wolfford.
When deputies arrived, they found the man dead inside the front door of the home. He had multiple gunshot wounds.

The woman, who is 1-month pregnant, was transported to the hospital with injuries Wolfford said were consistent with assault.
Investigators said they don't know what led up to the assault, but plan to question the woman.
Children, ranging in age from approximately 10 to 17 years old, were inside the house at the time and woke up to the sounds of an argument and gunshots.
