BOIS D’ARC, Mo. — Two people are in the hospital after a shooting in Bois D’Arc on Thursday, Feb. 18.

According to Greene County deputies, a call taker said they heard a gunshot in the background of a domestic disturbance call at 4:26 p.m. happening at the 12,000 block of W. Farm Road 124.

Sheriff Jim Arnott said officials arrived and saw a 33-year-old man outside the home on the ground next to a rifle with a gunshot wound to his chest.

Inside the home, officials found an 82-year-old female with facial injuries after allegedly being assaulted by the wounded man found outside.

Witnesses and a preliminary investigation suggest the male suspect assaulted the elderly female inside the home and shot the rifle he was holding near her. A woman and two minors left the home and got in a vehicle. The male suspect followed the woman and minors and approached them with his rifle aggressively. The woman allegedly took a handgun and shot the male suspect to prevent him from assaulting them. After the suspect was shot, the woman and two minors went to a neighboring home until deputies arrived.

Deputies said the male suspect and elderly woman were sent to the hospital for their serious injuries. Both individuals are in stable condition.
