— Police arrested a woman Wednesday night after she allegedly shot her boyfriend in the stomach.

Officers charged Michelle Joines, 42, of Raleigh, with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious injury and filing a false police report.

The shooting happened around 11 p.m. at her house at 5800 Neuse Wood Drive, according to authorities.

Emergency crews took her boyfriend, Paul Allen Boyd, to Duke Raleigh Hospital. He was expected to survive.

Police said Joines told them that another person shot Boyd with a Taurus .38-caliber revolver, which authorities say was untrue.
