The good news is that it would appear that Ms. Terra Lynn Wilcox will survive being shot numerous times by her "boyfriend" Earl James Pallasch during a July 10, 2016 argument over a broken stove.
The bad news is that these domestic violence incidents happen far too frequently - putting the lives of not only the participants, but also their children, and the responding police into mortal danger.
According to local court records - Mr. Pallasch has a past history (2008) of domestic violence - to include allegations of strangulation.
VolusiaExposed.Com has decided to post the Wilcox 911 call - in the hopes that someone out there that is involved in a similar domestic violent relationship - will hear this 911 call and have it become their wake up call to immediately exit such an abusive relationship. VolusiaExposed wishes Ms. Wilcox a speedy recovery.

AS WRITTEN BY THE VCSO PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICER
Volusia County Sheriff Department Media Releases WOMAN INJURED IN SHOOTING IN DELTONA A domestic quarrel sparked a shooting in Deltona early Sunday morning that sent a woman to the hospital with multiple injuries. Volusia County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a residence in the 1100-block of Michael Avenue after the Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call at 12:30 a.m. from the victim reporting that her boyfriend had busted out the windshield of her car with a chainsaw, choked her and threatened her with a gun. The woman had walked away from the residence to make the 911 call. But about 3 minutes into the call, the victim started screaming that her boyfriend was coming towards her with a gun. Moments later, the sound of gunfire could be heard and the woman told the call-taker that she had been shot. Deputies began arriving at the scene at 12:35 a.m. and found the woman down in the street at Cary Street and Worthington Drive, bleeding from multiple gunshot wounds. The woman was loaded into an ambulance and transported to Central Florida Regional Hospital in Sanford. Shortly before 1 a.m., while searching for the suspect, a shot was fired in the direction of deputies. They aren’t certain where the shot came from and no one saw the shooter. Traffic in the neighborhood has been blocked off and residents in the surrounding homes have been warned to stay inside until the scene is secure. Deputies have been making announcements over a public address system, but so far haven’t made contact with anyone inside the suspect’s house. More information will be released as developments dictate.
