NEW YORK (AP) Police say a woman has been shot dead in an apparent domestic argument at a New York City home while two children were there.

The gunfire erupted around 11 a.m. Saturday at a house on 104th Street in the Ozone Park section of Queens. Police say 40-year-old Jessica Canty was shot twice in the chest and died soon afterward at a hospital.

A man believed to be her husband was arrested in the area, and police have found a gun they believe was used. The man is in custody, and charges are to be decided.

Police didn't release the man's identity.

It's not immediately clear whether the children saw the shooting.
