A woman shot and killed her husband because he made an obscene gesture at her, according to police.
Tracey Grissom, 30, from Northport, Alabama, was charged with first-degree murder in the death of her husband Hunter Daniel Grissom, 28.
Sheriff Ted Sexton says the couple had a history of domestic violence.
According to the arrest warrant, Grissom was driving to work when she saw her ex-husband at a boat landing.
She stopped to take a photo of him for litigation related to their divorce.
Sheriff Sexton says several witnesses watched as the man made an obscene gesture and the woman opened fire around 8am yesterday morning.
Authorities say the woman called 911 after using all her ammunition and told them she shot her ex-husband.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say there was a lot of bad blood in this breakup.
“Whein doubt, empty the magazine .”
Crazy eyes or not guilty, this ought to be an interesting thread.
obviously of the ‘he ain’t dead til I run out of bullets’ school
Yeah, I'd say there's some bad blood.
I didn't think she had crazy eyes, more like I've just had too much pain eyes.
An obscene gesture to my wife is asking her to get me a beer from the fridge. “Wadda I look like, your waitress? Get your own damn beer!”
If things were as she represented then he needed shooting.
If not then no wonder he shot her the finger.
She can't be "not guilty" because she admitted that she shot her ex-husband.
Sheriff Ted Sexton says the couple had a history of domestic violence.I never would have guessed.
According to the arrest warrant, Grissom was driving to work when she saw her ex-husband at a boat landing. She stopped to take a photo of him for litigation related to their divorce.
She doesn’t have crazy eyes.
Tracey Grissom was the alleged victim in the rape and sodomy charges, according to Tuscaloosa County District Attorney Tommy Smith. According to WSFA.com, Tracey Grissom told police she was raped and sodomized by Hunter Grissom in November 2010.
She reported that he bound her legs with his belt, dragged her from their closet into their master bedroom and sexually assaulted her.
Tracey told police she was then knocked unconscious on the floor of their bathroom and didn't wake up until the next morning.
She went to the hospital for treatment following the alleged attack, and paperwork shows she had a gash on her head, bruises, bind marks on her feet and writing on her arm.
Looks as though Tracey did the world a favor . Dudes like this RARELY if ever change. Very sad.
Or she might not have wanted to leave old ammo lying around
She looks sad but calm. She has a four year old child with this vile man she killed. (see my previous post for what he did to her (his wife at the time and the mother then of his two year old daughter.)
yeah Probably wanted to buy bulk.
The most obscene jesture i could ever imagine making to a women is “will you marry me”,the thought she might say yes scares the hell out of me.:)
Train your dog to do it. If you don’t have a dog that can do it, it is worth you while to get that can and train it to fetch beer out of the refer.
Most likely that will upset your wife - having a dog sniffing in the refer - and she will insist on getting your beer herself.
Uh, just a suggestion.
Might as well just cut your hair into a spiky lesbian buzzcut and put on 120 pounds, missy. Have a swell time in prison.
Agreed. Pretty young woman with the 'thousand yard stare', just hurts the heart.
Yeah, when they were dating Hunter was just the sweetest guy. Poor Tracey had no idea what she was getting into. No idea!
So she’s available then...
I agree. She looks SO sad.
Alas, I can't tell it here.
Those are sad eyes. Very sad. Crazy doesn’t even compute.
Celibate can be a good thing. A sane kind of non-gun-shooting thing.
Alone is good. And fairly safe. In cases where N<>0.
No opinion offered... just remarking about the usual track these threads go. Looks like this story is too ugly even for the typical wise cracks.
She married him. What does that say about her?
So you don’t think evil is capable of hiding itself?
My ex-husband had everyone fooled. My pastor, my church, and me.
She didn’t hit the boat did she? BTW...NOT Guilty!
He spent less than a day in jail and was released on $71,000 bail.
There seem to be no further updates on this charge.
Hunter Grissom has also been previously charged with second-degree marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and other charges.
Tracey Grissom's bail was $60,000.
Maybe Tracey was just trying to shoot off his finger.
Reason #1 inmates at the insane asylum cannot be allowed to marry each other.
If he was a brute with his wife, she solved the problem.
The eyes tell a story.
I was going to make a humorous comment, but after reading the whole story, I think the bastard got what he deserved.
I can very easily see how a woman who has been subjected to that kind of treatment might decide that a leering grin and an obscene gesture were the collective last straw.
I was about to say crazy eyes, but a closer look makes it seem like they are simply the eyes of a woman who has been broken. I am not defending her - and shooting someone for an ‘obscene gesture’ (whatever that is) is wrong. Focusing solely on her eyes, those seem like sad eyes rather than crazy eyes. The crazy eye look shouts out loud. :)
Not guilty by reason of temporary insanity. She walks.
Probably not near as sad as their little daughter. No Mom for a long while, and a worthless daddy in the ground.
Court records show the couple have a four-year-old daughter together. We can only hope there is a Grand Mama ready to step right up, and take care of her.
I agree, she doesn’t have crazy eyes, he does.
Girl squirreled goes nuts.... Film at 11 !
Stay safe .
It is doubtful that Tracey is physically superior to Hunter in unarmed combat, and likely smart enough to know what would happen if he caught her off guard.
Well, she avoided the divorce and the litigation, plus she will have free rent for awhile.
But the brother fixed honey do’s ......:o)
More accurately, he got what he deserved IF he did what she says he did.
That the rape, assault, etc. occurred is not a fact. It is a claim by the wife.
That the cops gave it enough credence to file charges is a point in its favor for being true, but only a point.
Such charges are VERY common in bitter divorces.
A good friend of mine had the nuclear option, child molestation, used against him in his divorce. I don’t believe for a moment that it was true, but the mere fact of the accusation just devastated him.
Another friend was physically attacked by his wife during their divorce, trying to provoke him into hitting back. She wanted to be able to claim he was violent.
