Sarah Beth Ruth Taylor, 32, of North Myrtle Beach, was charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature.

When officers arrived at the home, Taylor was standing naked in the entryway hallway, according to the report. Both Taylor and the victim told police she walks around the house like that all the time.

The victim said Taylor tripped at the front door and fell, and thought he was the one who injured her chin because she was drunk, according to the report. The victim said he believes Taylor was trying to scare him with the gun and accidentally shot him in the chest.

Police said Taylor was the primary aggressor in the incident. The victim is not facing charges.

The victim was taken to Grand Strand Medical Center.
