SCOTTSDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

A woman who suspected her boyfriend was having an affair shot him seven times while he slept at a Scottsdale home Saturday night, according to a court document.

Miraculously, the man survived.

The victim said he woke up believing he had heard fireworks before feeling excruciating pain and realizing he had been shot.  

He was rushed to the hospital with a gunshot wound to his penis, two gunshot wounds to his scrotum and gunshot wounds to his neck, upper back and left thigh.

Della Flores, 53, was arrested and booked into jail on one count of first-degree attempted murder and one count of aggravated assault.

On Saturday night, Flores called the police to report her boyfriend had been shot. She initially said he had told her he had been shot and asked her to call for help, police said.

When officers arrived, she changed her story and admitted to shooting him after learning he had allegedly been cheating on her, court paperwork stated.

The victim denied the allegation and told police he has never had an affair and questioned why his girlfriend would shoot him.

He told officers he owned three 9-millimeter guns and said he didn't think his girlfriend owned a handgun, let alone know how to use one.

HANDGUN BOX FOUND IN VICTORIA'S SECRET BAG

Armed with a search warrant, officers opened a closet at the home and found a 32-millimeter handgun box in a Victoria's Secret bag near the woman's clothing. 

Inside the bag, police found sales receipts from Feb. 16, 2017, showing she had purchased the firearm at the Cabela's store in Glendale.

The receipts showed she had also bought 32-caliber ammunition, which was also found in the bag. Another empty box of 32-caliber ammunition was found in the woman's purse, police said.

A handwritten note on the receipts had the cross streets to a local shooting range.

Police said a 32-caliber handgun was discovered by first responders under a chair the victim had been sitting in while he slept.

Three shell casings were found in the living room, where the victim was located. Another round that had not been fired was located behind the victim's chair.

Officers said all of the rounds and casings that were found in the living room were 32-caliber rounds.

The officer stated in his report, "Based on the facts that the defendant has just recently purchased the firearm, the fact there were gunshots directed at the victim's neck near his head and that the victim was sleeping at the time of the shooting and no argument was taking place, it is believed that the defendant intentionally planned to shoot the victim with premeditation."

The couple had been dating for the past two years and had lived together for the past year, police said.

Flores was being held on a $750,000 secured bond. She has to post the full amount before she can be released.

She appeared before a judge Monday morning, who explained Flores must comply with her written release conditions if she is released.

"You may not go to the scene of the alleged crime or have any contact with the alleged victim. It does appear he is going to survive," the judge said. "You may not possess any weapons not any drugs without a prescription. You must obey terms of any order of protection that's issued against you."  

"OK," Flores responded before she was led away.

A status conference was set for March 6 and a preliminary hearing was scheduled for March 8.
