ENTERPRISE, AL (WSFA) - Enterprise detectives are investigating a domestic violence incident that took place on Tuesday.

According to Sgt. Billy Haglund, Enterprise police responded to a residence in the 100 block of County Road 262 around 9:30 p.m. after receiving a report that two people had been shot.

When officers arrived they discovered a male suspect in the front yard with a gunshot wound to the chest. They later found Mary J. Johnson, 59, of New Brockton inside the residence suffering from a gunshot to the leg.
