CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Police say an 88-year-old man shot and wounded a woman at a Carson City hospital.

Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong says William Dresser was arrested after firing one shot at the woman with a handgun on the third floor of Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center at 11:30 a.m. Sunday. No other injuries were reported.

He says they were in a domestic relationship but declined to elaborate. The woman's identity was not immediately released.

Furlong says the woman's injuries are life-threatening. She was transferred to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno.

The Carson City hospital issued a statement saying the shooting was "a targeted situation" that prompted a temporary lockdown of the facility.

The shooting comes nearly a month after a gunman walked into a medical facility next to the Reno hospital and killed one doctor and shot another before committing suicide.
