GALLATIN COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

Law enforcement responded to a shooting around 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 23.

According to the state's attorney's office, one person was shot and one person was later taken into custody. The shooting appeared to be accidental in nature.

Deputies found the victim around at a home just south of Omaha, Illinois. According to the state's attorney, the victim is still in the hospital with a gunshot wound and possible complications from the wound.

Law enforcement found at a 23-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the stomach in the front yard of the home. Emergency crews responded and the man was taken from the scene by Gallatin County EMS and Life Flight. He was being treated at an area hospital.

The state's attorney said this was not a drive-by shooting and no children were in danger.

According to the state's attorney, a search warrant was executed on Tuesday night on Washington Road and multiple pieces of evidence were taken from inside the same home the report came from.

One person was taken into custody.

The state's attorney said formal charges will be filed on Thursday in Gallatin County Circuit Court.

The investigation is ongoing and more arrests and charges are expected.
