Police are still investigating a shooting that took place during a domestic dispute late Thursday.

A Troy man is in critical condition Friday in a Montgomery hospital after being shot twice during a domestic dispute.

The incident occurred around 9:30 p.m. Thursday at a residence on Pike County Road 5513 near Livingston Crossroads, said Troy Police Sgt. Benny Scarbrough. Police received a 911 from a witness at the scene.

Scarbrough said the shooting victim, a 35-year-old male, was involved in a domestic dispute with a 34-year-old woman. During this dispute, a 61-year-old man shot the other man twice in the upper torso with a handgun. The older man is a relative of the woman involved in the domestic dispute, Scarbrough said.

“We’re not going to identify any of the people involved because we have an ongoing investigation,” he said. “Actually, it’s two investigations: one on the domestic dispute and another on the shooting.”

Scarbrough said a 20-month-old child was at the residence at the time of the incident and the Department of Human Resources was called to the scene.

As of Friday, no arrests had been made in either investigation. The 12th Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s office is assisting in the investigation.
