MAN SHOT IN SHOULDER DURING SUNDAY ARGUMENT

A Tupelo woman was in the North Mississippi Medical Center Monday with a gunshot wound to her shoulder after being shot during a Sunday night altercation.

Tabitha Listenbee, 26, of Debro Street was listed in stable condition, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Eric Hill, 25, of Hilldale Apartments on Monument Drive has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault in connection with the incident. A bond of $15,000 was set for him.

Hill was arrested at his home about two hours after the 9:30. p.m. shooting was reported Sunday at Listenbee’s home. Capt. Russ Witt, public information/Crime Prevention officer for the Tupelo Police Department, said the shooting was the result of a boyfriend-girlfriend dispute, though he could not elaborate. The department is continuing an investigation into the incident.
