Monroe County woman shot in thigh, man who lives with her arrested


MONROE -- The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting in which an unidentified woman was shot in the thigh.

Authorities responded just after midnight today to the 8000 block of Ida-Maybee Road in Exeter Township after a woman reported her 27-year-old son was “acting crazy” and had a gun.

On the way to the house, sheriff’s officials learned of a domestic violence incident at the house and upon arrival discovered a fight in a bedroom in the house.

Deputies found a 24-year-old woman who had been shot in the thigh by a shotgun that discharged during an argument. The woman and the 27-year-old man, who was arrested, live together at the residence.

Authorities, who would not release names of those involved pending an as-yet unscheduled arraignment, said the woman’s injuries do not appear to be life threatening and she was taken to a hospital.

The man is lodged at Monroe County Jail, and the incident remains under investigation.
