CHAMPAIGN COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — A woman faces charges for shooting a man. It happened about 1 pm, Monday, in the 1000-block of North Cunningham, Urbana.

27-year old Geneshia Grey was found outside a Champaign hotel, about 5:15 pm, Monday and was taken into custody.

Police responded to the scene and were told a 20-year old man drove himself to the hospital with gunshot wounds. He is listed in critical condition with non-life-threatening injuries to his head and arm.
