BRADENTON - A day of Thanksgiving turned into a night of violence for a Manatee County couple.

A female shooting victim turned up at Manatee Memorial Hospital around 7:40pm Thursday night and told authorities that she was shot by her husband at their home in the 1000 block of 35th Avenue Drive East in Bradenton.

She says she was alone at the home with her husband, 36-year-old Evincse Dorelus, when the two got into an argument and he shot her.

Evincse then drove her to the hospital and left her there.

He fled in his vehicle and is still at large.

His wife was treated for minor injuries and released.
