"I just don't want anybody coming over here and doing something to us," Taylor said.

The Madison County Sheriff's Office says a woman in her 30's got into a fight with her ex-boyfriend. Deputies say she shot the man at least twice.

"At first, I thought it sounded like a firecracker, but then I thought, 'That sounded like gunfire.' I looked around the side of our house and saw some guy laying on the ground right there next to the porch," Taylor said.

Investigators have not released the name of the victim. He was taken to Huntsville Hospital Trauma Services in serious condition, according to HEMSI spokesperson Don Webster. He is now expected to be okay, according to the Madison County Sheriff's Office. 

But, Taylor says she just wants all the violence to stop.

"All you can do is pray," Taylor said.
