MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) - Police have arrested and charged a 31-year-old Marshalltown man with attempted murder after finding a woman suffering a gunshot wound to the chest in a motel.

The Marshalltown Police Department said in a statement that officers responded to a shooting early Sunday and found the woman. She was taken to a Marshalltown hospital and then later to a Des Moines hospital.

Cedar Rapids television station KCRG (https://bit.ly/17ckQEp ) reports her name and condition aren’t being released at this time.

Authorities say Jean Martinez-Velazquez was also inside the room the woman was found in and taken into custody for questioning. He was later arrested and charged with attempted murder, possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver and aggravated domestic assault.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Martinez-Velazquez had an attorney.
