The victim of a violent family dispute in Grimes County was listed in stable condition Sunday night.
Sheriff officials say 56-year-old Mac Popham was air-lifted to Scott and White in Temple after he was shot in the stomach Saturday evening by his brother-in-law, Paul Spradling.
Officials say the shooting happened at a residence off FM 39 on Sleepy Hollow Lane.
Grimes County Sheriff Don Sowell says it appears Popham had been drinking and told his brother-in-law he had at one time beat his wife. That led to an argument.
Spradling has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He is being held at the Grimes County Jail on a $35,000 bond.
