Authorities are investigating a shooting inside a Little Rock apartment on Tuesday night.

Jeffery Williams, 50, who was hit in the leg, suffered an injury described in a Little Rock Police Department report as "major."

Authorities said it happened shortly before 11 p.m. in a unit at an apartment complex in the 5000 block of West 65th Street.

Police wrote in the report that Williams was "very irate" at the scene and "did not dwell into detail about what happened," but that a woman staying in the residence provided more information.

That woman described Williams as her mother's friend and said he at one point on Tuesday night was "instigating an altercation" with her and her boyfriend when he "made a threat to 'clear the apartment out,'" police wrote in the report.

Williams left but later returned, police wrote. The woman said she then heard a gunshot. Police said she told investigators her boyfriend fled from the residence through a window in a bedroom where a spent shell casing was located by authorities.

Williams was transported from the apartment to the hospital for treatment.

Police searched the area for the boyfriend, who is listed as a suspect in the report, but did not locate him.
