HOWARD - Authorities say a woman fatally shot her boyfriend in Howard, then turned herself into the Brown County Sheriff's Department.
Officials say the shooting happened early Saturday morning after a domestic disturbance.
They say the woman told investigators she and her boyfriend had been fighting, when she shot him.
Sheriff's officials would not release the woman's name, but the Brown County jail has identified her as Tricia Phillips.
Phillips was arrested and is in custody, but has not been charged.
She lived in the apartment where the shooting took place.
That's on Memorial Drive in Howard at the Northern Pines Apartments, just east of Highway 41.
Neighbors at the Northern Pines Apartments say they awoke to squad cars and complete shock.
"I didn't hear anything. I just woke up at around six o'clock to what was going on around here, and I was watching the news, and there was a killing here this morning,” said Tanya Chouinard.
"It was a domestic situation. They were a couple. They do not reside totally together at this location. He had access to this location but he did not live here,” said Captain David Konrath of the Brown County Sheriff's Department.
Konrath says a woman called 911 shortly after 4:15 Saturday morning.
"She called 911 herself, and identified what happened, and met our officers as they arrived at the scene," Konrath said.
Brown County Jail officials identified the woman who was arrested at the scene as Tricia Phillips.
Konrath says deputies found the woman’s boyfriend fatally wounded.
"She indicated that an argument ensued, and as a result of the argument, she ended up shooting him with the firearm,” he said.
Officials would not say how many shots were fired or what kind of firearm was used in the alleged shooting.
The name of the victim has not been released.
Konrath says there was no prior police history of domestic violence at the apartment.
He says Phillips was booked into the Brown County jail.
"At this point we're recommending Second Degree Intentional Homicide,” said Konrath.
Though officers say the public was never in danger, neighbors tell FOX 11 the shooting has them on edge.
"Yeah, I was very surprised because I thought that this was a very safe neighborhood,” said Chouinard.
Brown County Sheriff's officers say they're not ruling out self-defense as a possible motive, but that has not been determined yet. More information will be available about this incident on Monday morning.
Phillips will most likely have her first court appearance, where she will be officially charged.

Residents say it's been an odd summer, since the complex is usually quiet.
