Two investigations are wrapping up after police in Tuscaloosa County responded to a stabbing and a separate and unrelated shooting Friday afternoon.

Although the incidents took place less than two miles apart and within hours of one another Friday, they are not connected.

In the stabbing, police said 32-year-old Jamira Pope got into a disagreement with a man at a residence on Mimosa Garden Circle off Highway 69 South in Tuscaloosa Friday and stabbed him with a knife.

The victim is expected to survive his injuries, and Pope has been arrested and charged with second-degree domestic violence, a Class B felony.

She was placed in the Tuscaloosa County Jail, where her bond was set at $10,000.

On the other side of 69 South, police were called to Branscomb Apartments, where a man was suffering a gunshot wound to his leg.

Jack Kennedy, the commander of the Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit, said the man was "initially uncooperative, but eventually reported that he accidentally shot himself while mishandling a handgun."

The man has not yet been charged with any crime and has not been publicly identified as of Friday evening.
