PITTSBORO, Miss. (AP) - A Mississippi sheriff says a man is expected to be charged with attempted murder in a woman’s shooting.

Calhoun County Sheriff Greg Pollan tells WTVA-TV that Ralph Wayne Longstreet had a Monday court appearance scheduled on the charge.

Pollan says deputies sent to a home Saturday night had found the woman suffering from a gunshot wound to the stomach. The sheriff says she had serious injuries, and a helicopter took her to a hospital in Tupelo.

Deputies searched through the night for Longstreet and arrested him Sunday morning.

It is unclear if he has a lawyer who could comment for him.
