An early morning domestic has left one person shot and the alleged suspect in custody.
At 6:04 a.m., Newberry County Sheriff’s deputies were called to a residence on Highway 773 in Prosperity for a female having been shot.
Deputies arrived on scene and found the victim suffering a single gunshot wound to the face/ear area.
She was transported to a hospital for treatment; deputies would not name the hospital because the suspect is still at large.
