ST. LUCIE COUNTY, Fla. - St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara says a St. Lucie County man accidentally shot and killed his fiancée on November 19.

Just before midnight, deputies responded to a call at 7160 Maidstone Dr. The caller stated that he accidentally shot his fiancée, said Sheriff Ken Mascara.

The victim, identified as Glenda Ruth Gregory, 47, was transported to Tradition Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.

Her finance, Philip Nisa, Jr., 52, was at the scene when deputies arrived.  The sheriff's office said Nisa cooperated with deputies and detectives. They say Nisa told them he accidentally fired his gun at Glenda after mistaking her for an intruder.

"After a thorough investigation by our Criminal Investigations Division, with input from the 19th Judicial Circuit State's Attorney, it is concluded that the shooting on November 19th was a tragic accident," Sheriff Mascara said. "The Gregory and Nisa families were more than helpful and cooperative during our investigation and we continue to offer them our sincere condolences during this difficult time."

Detectives say Nisa is not facing criminal charges.

The Medical Examiner concluded that Gregory died from a single gunshot wound to her right chest.

According to his LInked in page, Nisa is the President of NisAir, an air-conditioning company in Fort Pierce.
