A domestic violence call in Prescott Valley ended with a gunshot wound victim being airlifted to the Flagstaff Medical Center for treatment Friday night.

At approximately 6:15 p.m. Friday, officers for the Prescott Valley Police Department responded to a “shots fired” call and arrived on scene to discover a man lying in the front yard with a gunshot wound, according to a department release Saturday morning.

The “shots fired” call on the 9100 block of East Whipsaw Lane in Prescott Valley resulted in 59-year-old Ramie Hansen being arrested and booked into the Yavapai County Jail in Camp Verde. A .38-caliber revolver was recovered at the scene.

Hansen was charged with four felonies, including attempted second degree murder, per domestic violence; disorderly conduct, per domestic violence; endangerment; and unlawful discharge of a firearm.

Hansen was the live-in girlfriend of the 52-year-old man, who had surgery to treat the gunshot wound and is in stable condition in Flagstaff, Prescott Valley Police spokesperson Jerry Ferguson said.

Ferguson added that an argument between Hansen and her boyfriend turned physical Friday night. She retrieved a gun to "protect herself" before it went off, wounding her boyfriend.

No information on bail for Hansen was provided as of Saturday afternoon.
