JACKSON - A Jackson man says he was shot by his neighbor as they watched television together. The incident happened at about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday at a home in the 100 block of W. Wilkins Street in Jackson. The shooting victim, a 27-year-old-man, tells police that he was in his neighbor's home watching TV when his neighbor fired a handgun at the television. The victim says he told his neighbor he didn't believe the gun was real, and that's when the victim says his neighbor shot him in the abdomen.
The wounded man left the home. His wife called police, who then found the man outside near an intersection. The man was taken to Allegiance Health and then moved to the Universitry of Michigan medical center in Ann Arbor. His condition is unknown.
Police arrested the victim's neighbor, a 32-year-old man, without incident. They did recover the .22 caliber handgun as well. He is being detained while the prosecutor decides what charges will be filed.
