When police officers arrived, the victim told them he was shot during a robbery. 

During the investigation, police interviewed a woman who told them about a sequence of events that took place detailing a felony domestic assault.

The man is currently in stable condition at a hospital. Police say he is not cooperating with the investigation. Additionally, police say the woman's account of events has been corroborated by evidence at the scene.
