OXFORD, MS (WMC) - A woman was shot in the head at University Trails Apartments in Oxford.

Investigators said a 23-year-old Alisha Smith got into an argument with her boyfriend, D'Marius Madkins, 28, who was taken into custody.

Other people living in the apartment complex said the sound of gunshots woke them up early Thursday morning.

"We didn't really expect it to be gunshots. I thought the power line or something like this happened," Simon Bogenreider said.

"He just said that, more or less, he's the one that had the gun, and he's the one that pulled the trigger," Oxford Police Department spokesman Chris Case said.

The victim was flown to Memphis' Regional Medial Center in critical condition. As of Friday morning, her condition was stable.

Officers said Madkins currently faces domestic violence and aggravated assault charges.

"The thoughts and prayers of the entire University of Mississippi community are with Alisha and her family. We're thankful for a quick response from first responders and hopeful for Alisha's full recovery."
