HPD Homicide Division Sergeants B. Roberts and R. Chandler reported:

Mr. Winfield and his estranged wife were at his mother-in-law's residence following the mother-in-law's funeral.  Several friends and family members were at the residence to pay their respects and eventually played dominoes and drank alcohol.  The friends and relatives left the residence before 11 p.m.  About an hour later, Winfield and his estranged wife got into an argument and, at some point, Winfield was shot by the woman.

Investigators spoke to everyone involved and no charges have been filed at this time.
