Clarence White told police officers that he did not mean to shoot his wife who complained about his weak sexual performance.
This happened in the morning of Thursday, July 27, 2017, at their Bronx apartment on Glebe Avenue, Parkchester.
The victim, Dominique White, 28, is now in intensive care at the Jacobi Medical Center where remnants of the bullet could still be found in her face.
Reports from the New York Daily News stated that the shooter confessed to the police upon arrest that he shot his wife.
He also dialled emergency service number, 911, and interacted with an operator who advised him concerning first aid measures pending the arrival of a medical team and the cops.
Clarence reportedly got into an argument with his wife whom he has a daughter with the woman ordering him to vacate their home.
This however didn't anger him until Dominique made a comment about his financial incompetence and not being good in the sack.
Following his arraignment for attempted murder, assault, harassment and weapons possession, a Bronx Criminal Court judge ordered that the accused be held on $300,000 bail.
