Medics took the man to a local hospital. His condition is not known, though Brown said the man was alert and conscious when they found him.

Brown said that police had a person of interest in custody and that there was not a threat to the general public.

Montgomery County Jail records show that a 28-year-old woman was arrested at the same address and booked on suspicion of felonious assault. She has not been formally charged.

The shooting remains under investigation.
