WILLIAMSON COUNTY -- A shooting has sent a man and his pregnant wife to the hospital.

Williamson County officials say the incident happened in the home the couple shares with the man's sister on Broadmeade near FM 620.

The siblings got into an argument around 10:30 p.m. Thursday and the sister shot the man in the shoulder and his wife in the abdomen.

The victims got into a truck to try and find the nearest hospital. They stopped for help at the Value Place Hotel parking lot in North Austin on Pond Springs Road.

"He wanted me to get in the truck and drive to the hospital. I raised up and looked in the truck and there was nothing but blood. The girl was reclined, crying, saying 'let's go let's go.' Blood everywhere.That's when I grabbed my phone and called police," witness James Huckleberry said.

Emergency crews took the injured couple to a Round Rock hospital. The man is stable, but his wife is in critical condition.

The man's sister turned herself into authorities and is now in custody.
