HARRISBURG, IL (KFVS) -

A Harrisburg woman is recuperating and a suspect was put behind bars after a shooting Friday afternoon.

Harrisburg Chief of Police Bob Smith says that they were called to 509 North Granger Street around 4:30 Friday afternoon on a report of shots being fired in the area.

Upon arrival they found a 37-year-old African-American woman inside the home that had been shot once. She was airlifted to Deaconnes Hospital in Evansville, Indiana.  She had been upgraded to stable condition Saturday morning.

Police arrested 22-year-old Keiwan Taylor on Friday evening for unlawful possession of a firearm. He is being considered as a suspect in the shooting.

Chief Smith says they believe that Taylor walked up to an open window of the home on Friday afternoon and fired a number of shots at random into the home.

Police believe this may have been a retaliation shooting for something from a previous altercation in Harrisburg. And that the victim was not the intended target, but her daughter may have been.

Lead investigator Curt Hustedde says there will be more charges filed once investigation is done.

They were still gathering evidence at the home on Saturday.

Taylor was taken to the Saline County Detention Center.
