A Union County woman is behind bars after police say he shot a woman in the face.
It happened Friday night in Morganfield. Police say 21-year-old Deontay Black shot Nancy Stevens in the face and in the back.
Shot and abandoned, deputies say Stevens managed to crawl across a field to a nearby home. There she found help.
"We understand that she walked and drug herself up from the corner of the highway down there to a house. And she beat on the floor until somebody came to the door," says Martin Thomas, a neighbor.
Stevens was taken to a local hospital. No word on her condition tonight.
Black has been charged with attempted murder and fleeing the scene of a crime.
