An Alabama woman was arrested for allegedly shooting her boyfriend because he refused to sign divorce papers -- all after arguing with the victim's wife over a Facebook video call.

Keanna Cammon of Tuscaloosca, Alabama was taken into custody on Aug. 15 and has been charged with attempted murder, according to AL.com, an Alabama-based news organization.

Police were alerted to the incident when the victim's wife reported that she was witnessing her husband being held at gunpoint on a Facebook call. Cammon had allegedly shown herself holding a gun to the victim's head. The names of both the victim and the victim's wife have not been released.

"I don't know if he is OK and I don't where about he is in Tuscaloosa," the victim's wife, who was in Hoover, Alabama at the time, had written in a Facebook status. "Can somebody help me. I'm at work and I am about to lose it. I think she shot him."

Two hours later, the victim's wife updated her status.

"She (expletive) shot him. I'm about to lose my (expletive) mind," she wrote.

Police responded to the shooting at around 10:30am. The victim had been shot in the torso, said Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit Capt. Kip Hart. He was taken to DCH Regional Medical Center, according to WVTM 13, a Birmingham, Alabama-based NBC affiliate. He remains in critical condition.

Cammon was described by investigators as the victim's girlfriend. She allegedly had become enraged by the victim when he refused to sign divorce papers, according to Tuscaloosa News. Cammon, who had filed for divorce from her own husband last week, according to the paper, told police that the gun had gone off while arguing with the victim's wife on the call. The victim's wife said that she was threating the victim's life during the argument.

Cammon is being held at the Tuscaloosa County Jail with bond set at $60,000.
