The incident occurred around 9 a.m. Wednesday on the 1600 block of Winthrop, near Woodward and East Square Lake, Det. Sgt. John Weise said.

“We’re looking to see whether it was an accidental shooting or intentional,” Weise said Thursday morning. “(The victim) is in stable condition and doing fine.”

The woman is expected to recover, Weise added. Her boyfriend is in custody and cooperating with police.

No further information was immediately available on the circumstances leading to the shooting. Police planned to release more details later Thursday, Weise said.
