BURKBURNETT, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

The Wichita County Sheriff's Office says a shooting last week near Burkburnett was not an accident. 

Deputies responded to a home on Hayley Road near Burkburnett on Friday, August 3. 

When officers arrived on the scene, the victim was being treated for a gunshot wound to the chest. According to the arrest warrant, the victim has been shot with a shotgun that had been loaded with a bird shot.

Deputies spoke with Cassiady Scruggs, 33, who said she had been inside the home when she heard the gunshot and she then went outside to find the victim with a wound in his chest, according to the arrest warrant.

During that interview, Scruggs said she, a child, and the victim were the only people in the property at the time.

On Monday, deputies interviewed the victim who said he had one bird shot pellet lodged in the wall of his heart and one in his left lung, according to the arrest warrant.

The victim told deputies, on the day of the shooting he was standing between his vehicle and the vehicle door in the driveway of the home. 

Following a 'minor confrontation' with Scruggs, the victim alleges she went back inside the home and returned with a shotgun and shot him through the window of the vehicle.

A warrant for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon Family Violence was issued on Monday. Scruggs was booked into the Wichita Co. Jail on Thursday where she remained on a $50,000.
