GAFFNEY, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A man was airlifted to the hospital after deputies said he was shot at a Gaffney home Wednesday.

According to dispatch, the shooting was reported along the 2000 block of Union Highway about 5 a.m.

Sheriff Steve Mueller said deputies arrived to find a man who had been shot by a female at the home. He said the man was airlifted to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center.

He said the two individuals knew each other and deputies had been dispatched to previous calls at the home involving criminal domestic violence.

"We know that he went to the home uninvited and he went into the home and the female in the home shot him," Mueller said.

Mueller confirmed that the man who was shot had recently been arrested on criminal domestic violence charges. He said deputies are working to get the court paperwork to see if there was a protection order in place or a no contact order placed by the court.

He said as they continue to investigate and conduct interviews, they will determine at a later time whether charges will be filed.

Mueller said the investigation is ongoing, but he wants the community to know no one else in the community is at risk.

As the investigation continues, Mueller said they would not be releasing the names of those involved at this time.
