A 24-year-old woman was apparently shot in the leg by her boyfriend in Prosser on Sunday.
Prosser police officers and an ambulance crew were called to 900 Alexander Court for a medical problem, and found a woman with a gunshot wound to her leg, said Officer Mark Cole.
The woman, who reportedly was not cooperating with police, was taken to Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland.
Later, police arrested Bradley Santoyo, 22, of Prosser, on suspicion of first-degree assault domestic violence and illegal gun possession.
