WEBSTER GROVES, Mo. (KMOV) - A suspect was arrested Tuesday afternoon, less than a day after he allegedly shot a woman who was lying in bed at her Webster Groves home.

Police say the shooting happened in the 300 block of Tuxedo Blvd near Glen Road just after 9:30 p.m. Monday. Officers believe the suspect fired 4-6 shots into the back of the house.

The woman was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. After she was released from a hospital, the woman told First Alert 4 that she was shot in the arm and the bullet is still in her arm.

“We’re all in shock and very concerned,” one resident told First Alert 4. “In what--60 something years--we’ve never had a crime like this at all.”

Several neighbors told First Alert 4 they have called code enforcement several times over the years about the home that was shot at on Monday night.

Police say they are seeking charges of first-degree assault, armed criminal action, first-degree property damage, possession of a forging instrumentality and forgery. Officers say they found a gun and 12 magazines with several hundred rounds of live ammunition on the suspect.
