The man was not hit by any of the bullets and ran to a neighbor’s house for help, MPs said. When the authorities arrived, they confirmed that the victim was safe.

Layni Carver is accused of shooting her boyfriend and barricading himself in the house.

The Charlotte County Sheriff’s SWAT, Aviation and Crisis Negotiation teams were called to the scene after Carver refused to come out. Carver eventually left the house on his own, MPs said.

The shooting appears to be an isolated domestic incident, investigators said.

Carver is faced with a heavy attack with a lethal weapon with no intent to kill.
