MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Three people have been shot, one critically, in a domestic dispute in the capital city. Montgomery Police say a 46-year-old woman was shot in the neck and is suffering life-threatening injuries.

The woman's daughter, 24, was shot in both arms and a third victim, a 20-year-old male acquaintance, was grazed in the neck by a bullet.

Police say the shootings stemmed from a domestic dispute between the mom and her boyfriend, 53 year-old Kenneth Lawson.

The incident happened at the Berry Hill Place Apartments on Berryhill Road where the woman lived until Thursday. The couple was apparently in the process of breaking up and a verbal altercation started when she arrived. 

Investigators say the woman came to the apartment because one of her daughters, a 12-year-old, was to get off the school bus there. Lawson, confined to a wheelchair, allegedly came outside and an argument started. He then started shooting according to police.

Lawson was arrested on the scene, charged with Attempted Murder and two counts of Assault 1st Degree. He's being held at the Montgomery County Detention Facility.

According to investigators the 12-year-old whom the mother was waiting on had not gotten off the bus yet and did not witness the shootings.
