Female victim is recovering from life threatening injuries at University Hospital
Prosecutors have charged a man after a shooting and police chase Sunday evening.
Boone County prosecutors charged Alfonso Rodriguez, 34, with armed criminal action, first-degree domestic assault and resisting arrest on Tuesday.
Police told ABC 17 News Rodriguez shot Gisela Angel-Lopez, 20, in the neck in the 5600 block of South Route K just before 6 p.m Sunday.
She was taken to University Hospital for life-threatening injuries. As of Tuesday evening, she has been upgraded to serious condition from critical condition Monday night.
Rodriguez was taken into custody during a police chase on eastbound Interstate 70 after police used a spike strip to deflate his tires, just west of the Highway 63 connector.
Police say Rodriguez was the boyfriend of Angel-Lopez.
The Criminal Investigation Division was given the case and is looking into it.
