A man is in custody and a female is hospitalized after she was found with gunshot wounds to her arm and leg in Sawyer County Thursday.

The Sawyer County Sheriff's Office says they responded to a residence about 7 miles south of Hayward, Wis. around 7:15 p.m. A male had called 9-1-1 from 8244N Ochu Road in the Town of Bass Lake requesting an ambulance for "wounds." The caller would not give any further medical information, according to the Sawyer County Sheriff's Office.

When a deputy and ambulance responded, the unnamed woman was found with the gunshot wounds. She was hospitalized and is in fair condition. 

After statements by the male on the scene, he was arrested and taken to Sawyer County Jail. 

The incident is being investigated by the Sawyer County Sheriff's Office, with assistance from the Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigations and State Patrol.

No further information is available; the Sawyer County Sheriff's Office cites the ongoing investigation.
