The two victims of the Ortonville apartment complex shooting are both in stable condition, sources say.

Police say 34-year-old Michael Quigley opened fire on his 33-year-old estranged wife and a man whose age is unknown at an apartment on Village Court around 8 p.m. on Tuesday.

The man, a friend of the woman's, was shot in the eye and is able to talk. 

Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard released a statement saying she was shot in the back of the head. Sources are telling WXYZ that Quigley's estranged wife was shot in the nasal cavity and currently has a feeding tube down her throat.

Both are cooperating with police. 

The woman was reportedly in the process of filing for a divorce and getting a personal protection order against Quigley when the shooting occurred. 

A witness says the male victim is the father of a 3-year-old girl who was in the apartment at the time of the shooting. She was reportedly uninjured. 

Editor's note: A previous version of this story referred to the male victim as the boyfriend of the alleged shooter's estranged wife. This information came from a neighbor, but police are uncertain if the man was a boyfriend or a friend.
