The victim was airlifted to an area trauma center, Potter said, and the suspect, who had fled the scene by the time deputies arrived, was taken into custody a short time later. The suspect was also transported to a local hospital for observation as a result of an altercation the department says took place at the Bowling Green Road residence earlier that evening.

The Sheriff’s Office is not releasing the identity of the suspect at this time. The investigation is ongoing.
