A man from Reeds Spring remains in critical condition today after being shot seven times last night (12-13-10).
Stone County Sheriff Richard Hill says drinking led to a domestic disturbance at 196 Jami a little after 10:45 p.m.
A woman who lived at that house was chased by her boyfriend when she ran next door to her sisters home for help. The forty year-old man, who had been drinking and was holding a knife, kicked in the door of the neighboring house. Once the man kicked in the front door, a 39 year-old male resident opened fire on the man.
The victim, who was airlifted to St. John's Hospital in Springfield, underwent several hours of surgery today according to Chief Deputy Rich Anderson.
