UPDATE: The suspect from the shooting was identified to be Roger Boone of Little River. He has been charged with attempted murder, kidnapping 1st degree, shooting into an occupied vehicle and several other charges.

The victim was treated and released from USA hospital. 

Baldwin County, Ala. -- Baldwin County SO units are on scene near the area of Ralph Gantt Road in the Little River community in reference to a person being shot.

The shooting was related to domestic violence. While driving, the husband involved rammed his vehicle into his wife's truck, which pushed her off the road. They then got into an altercation and he shot her in the abdomen.

The female victim ended up escaping and was later flown to USA for treatment. 

The male was barricaded inside his mother's residence but has since surrendered after talking to one of the Crisis Response Team negotiators.

No public safety threat at this time.
