Former Greensboro police lieutenant Brenda Johnson Bishop, 70, is accused of shooting and killing her husband George Bishop, 68, on Dec. 10 in their home at 1504 Larchmont Drive.

In a search warrant for their house, executed the same day as the shooting, Detective J.R. Waddell states officers were searching for blood, DNA, weapons, shell casings, fingerprints, clothing, cell phones or any other evidence relating to the shooting.

Police seized three firearms, three spent shell casings, one bullet projectile, one bullet projectile fragment, some clothing, a fanny pack, a fleece jacket, a motorized wheelchair, a nylon handgun holster and three boxes of handgun ammunition, according to court documents made public Tuesday.
