'The Shield' actor Michael Jace said he wanted to wound his wife, not kill her, transcript reveals

An actor who played a police officer on television said he wanted to hurt his wife and intended only to shoot her in the leg in what turned out to be a deadly attack, according to a transcript of his interview with detectives released Thursday during his murder trial. 

Michael Jace, who appeared on the television series “The Shield,” also told police he didn't know his wife was dead when he spoke to detectives after the shooting, the transcript shows. 

Jace said he had planned to kill himself with a revolver that belonged to his wife's father but didn't have the courage and instead wanted to harm his wife.
