FORT BEND COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- A Stafford woman accused of shooting her husband in the stomach is facing a felony charge of aggravated assault-family violence.

Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office identified the 26-year-old suspect in the shooting on Wednesday as Michaela Davis. She's being held in the Fort Bend County Jail on a $40,000 bond.

According to the sheriff's office, deputies were called to the 700 block of Stafford Springs Avenue at about 3:45 p.m. regarding a domestic dispute involving the 24-year-old victim and Davis, his wife.

The victim was rushed to a hospital in Houston where he underwent exploratory surgery. Deputies added that he's expected to survive.

Children were present at the home when the shooting took place, but deputies did not say how many were there, their ages, or whether they were harmed. Those children were released to their grandparents at the scene, deputies said.
