Woman questioned in shooting sparked by domestic dispute, deputies say

VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. – A woman is in custody and being questioned in connection to a shooting that took place Saturday.

Deputies said the shooting victim was at a friend's house on Emporia Road, asleep on the couch, when a woman he has a child with showed up and opened fire before leaving the scene.

The man drove himself about half a mile to his home, where he met deputies and medical personnel, who transported him to Florida Hospital DeLand for treatment, officials said.

Deputies said they were able to track down the woman about 2 1/2 miles from the shooting scene and took her in for questioning.

The Volusia County Sheriff's Office reportedly took a rifle into custody but it's unclear whether they believe the gun was the weapon used in the shooting.
