AMORY, Miss. (WTVA) - Amory police responded to a shooting Thursday night in the city and the victim remains in a Memphis hospital.
Police Investigator Andy Long said the department received a call around 8:30 about a man being shot.
Long said the ex-husband of a woman went to her home and the two began to argue. The woman's current boyfriend became involved and the situation escalated to gunfire.
The ex-husband was shot seven times, Long said, but managed to drive himself to the hospital in Amory.
The man was later transported to the Tupelo hospital before being moved to Memphis, Tennessee, where he is currently in stable condition.
Long said the names of those involved and location of the shooting are not being released, but did say the ex-husband drove to Amory from another town.
He added no one is charged in connection with the shooting at this time. The investigation continues and information collected will be presented to a Monroe County grand jury.
