ROY, Weber County — A woman was shot and a man is in custody Thursday evening in Roy, according to police.

The shooting took place about 5:30 p.m. Thursday near 5100 S. 1900 West, according to Roy police spokesman Stuart Hackworth.

Police arrived at the scene and found a woman who had been shot in her side, Hackworth said. She was conscious and breathing when officers arrived, he said.
