HUGHSON, Calif. — A response to a disturbance call turned into a shooting in Hughson, according to the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded to a reported argument between a man and a woman on the 5000 block of Nunes Road, near Keyes Road, Monday afternoon. The sheriff's office said that a woman was being attacked as a man tried to enter her home.

During the incident, the California Highway Patrol also got a repot that a person was shot in the same location.

Arriving deputies found a 27-year-old man shot in the driveway; he was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
