A domestic dispute overnight put a Rutherford County man in the hospital with three gunshot wounds.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office received a report that someone had been shot on Polk County Line Road in Rutherfordton around 12:24 a.m. Sunday night.

A 24-year-old man was shot on Sunday in what authorities called an "'ongoing domestic situation" between a man and woman.

The man who was shot had a relationship with a woman who lived at the Polk County Line Road house. Authorities say there is a domestic order between the shooting victim and the woman.

The suspected shooter also lives at the Polk County Road home; the man who was shot does not.

Both the victim and the suspected shooter are men in their early twenties.

The victim was found in the road and transported by EMS to Spartanburg Regional Health Care System for treatment for multiple gunshot wounds. The suspected shooter tried to assist the victim after helping contact emergency responders.

This is an ongoing investigation, and while no charges have yet been filed, authorities say they expect to file charges Tuesday.
