ODESSA - They say there are two sides to every story. But in the case of how an Odessa woman ended up with a gunshot wound to her hand, there are three sides.

The shooting happened on Saturday morning.

Authorities say 33-year-old Montrel Rand shot his wife in the hand during an argument.

At first, rand and his wife said someone had driven by their house and fired at them but the couple's child told police his mother came into the living room with a bloody hand.

He said his father was acting crazy and fired the gun off four more times, nearly hitting the boy.

Rand has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon and endangering a child.
