GREENFIELD, Ind. (WISH) — A man was injured in a shooting early Wednesday morning in Greenfield, police say.

Greenfield detectives say the shooting occurred in the 1900 block of North Melody Lane just before 1 a.m. Officers found 44-year-old Heriberto Guzman Mendez shot in the arm after what police believe was a domestic dispute.

Detectives say that it is alleged that Mendez was beating a woman inside a moving vehicle on Melody Lane around Kroger. The woman reached for her firearm and fired at least one shot, striking Mendez in the arm.

The woman got away and drove to a local hospital. Police say the woman had a protective order against Mendez during the incident.

Mendez was treated at the scene and then taken to an Indianapolis hospital for treatment. He was arrested after his release and taken to the Hancock County Jail, where he awaits an initial hearing.
