WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - A woman is in critical condition in a Syracuse hospital after suffering a gun shot wound to her head in Watertown Tuesday night.

Watertown city police say patrols responded to a domestic incident at 221 East Main Street shortly before 11 p.m. and heard a gunshot coming from in front of the home while leaving their vehicle.

Officers say they found a 32-year-old unconscious woman with a head wound on the front porch.

She was treated at the scene by Watertown firefighters and personnel from Guilfoyle Ambulance. She was taken to Samaritan Medical Center and later flown to Upstate University Hospital, where she was listed in critical condition Wednesday morning.

Police say they recovered a weapon and talked to witnesses at the scene.

They say there’s no threat to the public and they expected to release more information later in the day as they continue to investigate.
