Police arrested a 31-year-old Lincoln man Thursday evening on suspicion of shooting a woman in the stomach.

Paul Michael Boye, 1715 N. 14th St., allegedly shot the 25-year-old woman Sunday morning.

She walked into Bryan West Campus just before 5 a.m. The bullet had gone through a kidney and lodged near her spine, and doctors operated on her, police said. They had released her by Friday morning.

The woman initially balked at giving police information and told them a stranger shot her at a party, but Lincoln Police Officer Katie Flood said the two know each other.

Investigators uncovered evidence over the next four days that led them to believe Boye fired the shot, Flood said.

Police searched his home Thursday and seized several guns, then arrested him about 5:15, she said.

Boye is in jail on suspicion of committing first-degree domestic assault and using a weapon to commit a felony.

Prosecutors plan to charge him Monday, court records show.
