BRADENTON, Florida-- On Friday afternoon, it was peaceful on 86th Street Court Northwest, a street in a upscale part of town.
The home with the address 705 has a white picket fence surrounding a backyard pool, but investigators say the couple who stayed there hardly lived the American dream.
Manatee County deputies say Robin Crane shot and killed her ex-husband around 8:30 Thursday night after a domestic dispute.
Investigators say Ernie Crane called 911 earlier in the night to say they were arguing and things might escalate. A deputy responded, but no saw no signs of physical abuse, like bruises or marks, and neither one said it had turned physical or wanted to press charges.
Just moments later, with the deputy still parked outside, detectives tell 10 News Ernie came running outside screaming that he had been shot.
