Police did not say how they were able to settle on Cain.

Officers were called around 3 a.m. Sunday to an area in the 3000 block of Plaza Drive. Moments later, though, Bruce herself called 911 and said she’d been shot and was driving herself to the hospital. Police said she refused to pull over and provide her location or wait for an ambulance. Bruce did say, though, that she was actually shot in the 4600 block of Oliver Street.

Police said Bruce provided few details about what happened to officers, but investigators believe the shooting was the result of a domestic dispute.

She was transported to another hospital and initially reported in critical condition. Her condition was upgraded to fair by Monday.

In the aftermath of the shootings, detectives interviewed potential witnesses and crime scene technicians gathered and processed potential evidence. Police said Monday that the investigation was “ongoing.”

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of Cain has been asked to contact police at 427-1222.
