Tulsa Police arrested 25-year-old Javonta Williams in connection to Monday's shooting in south Tulsa. He's facing one count of assault and battery with a deadly weapon.

Investigators responded to the 6400 block of South Owasso Avenue around 6:30 a.m. When officers arrived, they found a woman lying on the street with a gunshot wound to the stomach.

Police say some good samaritans tried to help the woman when police got to the scene. The victim was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

Investigators say the woman could have been shot inside a car. It had bullet holes in the front windshield, and police found shell casings on the street. They believe the shooting could have stemmed from a domestic situation.

Police say they also received reports of a man who had been shot by Madison, but they were unable to located him. They believe both incidents could have been related.

Williams' arraignment is scheduled for June 12.
