A Hockley County victim is recovering at a Lubbock hospital after a Thursday night shooting.
The Hockley County Sheriff's Office says Danny Baxter was brought to UMC Thursday night, after his girlfriend, Geneva Simmons, shot him in the chest.
Deputies arrived at a home near the Hockley County and Lubbock County line around 11 p.m. that night.
They say Simmons called 911 and admitted to shooting Baxter.
She told investigators that it started as an argument, and that Baxter was intoxicated.
Simmons remains behind bars in Hockley County, charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
