NASHUA – A 41-year-old Nashua man will be arraigned Monday on a charge that he shot a woman in the stomach during a domestic dispute at his residence over the weekend.

Christopher Martini, of 101 ½ Gilman St., is accused of injuring the woman with a handgun early Saturday evening.

Nashua police Lt. Denis Linehan said officers were called to the area at 7:23 p.m. to investigate a report of gunfire.

Neighbor Scott Duplessis told WMUR-TV that he heard the gunshot and suspected it could be someone setting off fireworks in the neighborhood.

“I didn’t hear no screams or anything like that and the next thing you know, the whole street just filled with cops within minutes,” Duplessis told the television station.

Police found the 32-year-old victim suffering from at least one gunshot wound. She was transported by ambulance to a local hospital, then flown by medical helicopter to a facility in Worcester, Mass., for treatment.

Linehan said her injuries were not life-threatening. Her condition was unknown Sunday evening.

Nashua police arrested Martini at his home. He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Nashua district court on a single charge of domestic violence reckless conduct. Linehan said the charge is likely to be upgraded.

Police are still investigating what prompted the shooting.

“All I can tell you is we’re looking into that,” Linehan said.
