Authorities say the 34-year-old man who was shot in the stomach early Saturday is recovering at Eastern Maine Medical Center.

PROSPECT, Maine (AP) _ Maine police are investigating a weekend shooting in Prospect that sent a 34-year-old man to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the stomach.

The Waldo County Sheriff's Department says the victim had a fight with his girlfriend Friday night and went to stay at a relative's house, but decided to return to his girlfriend's home after midnight Saturday morning.

Chief Deputy Jeffrey Trafton says a fight ensued when the man discovered another man at his girlfriend's home. The other man, who is 48 and from Brewer, told investigators that he pulled out a .38-caliber gun and fired because his head was being smashed against the floor.

Trafton says the victim is recovering at Eastern Maine Medical Center. No charges have been filed and names haven't been released.
