A man is expected to survive injuries he suffered Thursday night in the latest of a series of shootings in Tuscaloosa.

Captain Marty Sellers, the co-commander of the Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit, said officers were called to the 2200 Block of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard when they heard a gunshot nearby.

As they were trying to trace its origin, they allegedly witnessed a woman fire additional shots from a location on 21st Street.

Sellers said investigators believe the woman, 40-year-old Natasha Gordon, was arguing with the victim, a 60-year-old Tuscaloosa resident earlier Thursday and her dog had been hurt during a physical struggle with the man.

Sellers said it isn't clear who initially possessed the gun, but Gordon ended up with it, and as the man reportedly walked away from the residence where they had fought, she opened fire and struck him with at least one bullet.

Sellers said the victim's injuries are not life-threatening.

Gordon was arrested and charged with first-degree assault. Her bond is set at $10,000.

The incident comes a day after another shooting not far away at Tuscaloosa's Bonita Terrace apartments.

The victim in the case died hours after the incident, and a Tuscaloosa woman has been charged with murder for it.
