UPDATE: According to Lieutenant Donny Shaw with the Madison County Sheriff's Office, two calls of a shooting at Buddy Williamson Road came in around 3 a.m. Wednesday morning from a male and a female.

The male told 911 that he had been shot, and emergency personnel were dispatched to the scene. The female called 911 from next door and said she had been held and that she had shot a man.

When officials got to the scene, they found the male with gunshot wounds to his wrist and upper torso. He was taken to Huntsville Hospital for treatment.

The female was taken to the sheriff's office where she was interviewed and then released. A family member later brought her to a hospital.

An investigation is underway at the scene, and a warrant was issued to continue a search for more evidence.

According to the sheriff's office, the male and female are in a domestic relationship, and it's believed that a physical altercation resulted in the female shooting the male twice before running over to the neighbor's home.
