MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The Montgomery Police Department is investigating after a man was seriously injured in a shooting Wednesday morning.

Details are limited, but police responded to an area hospital around 9:35 a.m. on reports that a person had been shot.

Investigators have since determined the shooting happened in the 100 block of Bonaparte Boulevard, just off the East South Boulevard.

A WSFA 12 News photojournalist found multiple police units investigating at Cambridge Apartments, located in the same area.

Maj. Saba Coleman said a suspect, Shaquille Hill, 23, was taken into custody at the scene and charged with first-degree assault.
