GIBSON COUNTY, Tenn. — A woman is in critical condition and her husband will face attempted murder charges after a Saturday night shooting in Trenton, according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputies responded around 10:30 p.m. Saturday to a possible domestic-related shooting on McMurray Road, according to a release from the Gibson County Sheriff’s Office.

There they found Shena Johnson-Cliff, 31, lying in the driveway with apparent gunshot wounds to her face and upper chest, according to the release.

The couple’s three minor children were home at the time of the shooting, according to the sheriff’s office. They were inside while the shooting took place outside in the driveway.

The children are safe and currently in the care of family members, according to the release.

Cliff is being held at the Gibson County Correctional Complex.

Official charges will be filed Monday and will include attempted second-degree murder, criminal attempt to commit second-degree murder, possession of a firearm during the commission of a dangerous felony, and unlawful carrying or possession of a firearm, the release states.

Cliff is currently held in lieu of $100,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in Gibson County General Sessions Court Tuesday morning.
