CARSON CITY (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 a 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.

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

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

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, killing one doctor and shooting another before committing suicide.
