Man shot during domestic dispute in critical condition

PASS CHRISTIAN, MS (WLOX) - A 34-year-old man is in critical condition after being shot in the buttocks with a .45 caliber handgun in the DeLisle community Wednesday morning.

Maj. Thomas Clifford, with the Harrison County Sherriff's Department, said the man was shot during what appears to be a domestic dispute.

Clifford said the shooting happened at a home on Alpine Rd. around 9 a.m. A woman was taken into custody less than a mile from the home. Clifford said she was stopped in a traffic stop while trying to leave the scene.

The woman has not been charged with a crime, but she is being questioned by the sheriff's department.

The man was airlifted to Memorial Hospital in Gulfport and is currently in surgery.
