THEODORE, AL (WALA) -

Mobile Police say one man was arrested and another was shot Saturday morning in Theodore. 

According to Mobile Police officials, one man was shot in the stomach in the area of Hounds Run II Apartments, at 6256 Old Pascagoula Road. 

The incident happened about 9 a.m. Saturday. The victim was taken to a local hospital. The victim's name has not been released.

Police spokesman Laderrick Dubose told FOX10 News that Trent Booker II, 27, is the shooting suspect and was arrested nearby at the Express Mart gas station at 6075 Old Pascagoula Road. He is charged with second-degree assault.

Residents at the apartment complex tell FOX10 News they saw it unfold.

Mary Sainz was taking a morning stroll through her apartment complex when she walked up on a shooting in progress. Sainz said it started with two guys arguing around a group of people before things quickly escalated. 

""I saw someone coming out from building C running down the sidewalk and I heard a man say: You're shooting at me!  Why did you draw that gun on me? Why did you draw that gun on me?" I couldn't believe it. I thought he was just pointing the gun. He fired several times I suppose, eight or nine times, I don't know," Sainz said.

Cindy Graddy lives a few apartments over. She said she heard the gunshots from inside her home.

"It was: pow pow pow pow pow! like somebody was unloading a clip," Graddy said.

Sainz and Graddy said their apartment complex typically isn't a place for violence, but this shooting has them concerned for their safety.
"It's pretty scary especially if my grand babies were out here. Yeah, very scary," Graddy said. 
"This is more than scary because you know when it's to the point that you can't go out for a morning walk, trying to take care of yourself, it's very bad," Sainz said.
