The victim and her boyfriend were arguing at the residence in the 600 block of Alabama Ave. when the suspect pulled out a gun and shot the victim, police said.

The suspect, 34-year-old Kenneth William Mitchell II, went to a neighbor's house to seek assistance, according to police, and the victim went to the residence on Charleston Avenue.

Mitchell was found and arrested without incident, police said. He was charged with attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
