A woman was shot in the face by her boyfriend in south Wichita on Monday, police said.

Police were called to a shooting in the 2500 block of South Maize Court, near Pawnee, at around 4:40 p.m., Officer Charley Davidson said.

After officers weren't able to enter the home, a 40-year-old man opened the door, Davidson said. The man then tried to provide first aid to a 28-year-old woman who had a gunshot wound to her face.

The woman was taken to an area hospital in critical condition and remained in critical condition on Tuesday morning, Davidson said.

Booking reports show Ontario Manion Cruz, 40, was arrested on suspicion of aggravated battery in connection to the case.
