Paducah Police arrested a suspect in a shooting that took place Saturday in Metropolis.

A Wickliffe man told Metropolis Police that he went to a residence to buy a PlayStation but instead was held there against his will. The man told police that he got free after a couple of hours and got to his vehicle, but that the suspect, 59-year-old Anita C. Prater, fired a shotgun at him. 

The man sustained injuries to his face and arm from the buckshot. A bystander took him to the hospital. He was flown to Nashville from Massac Memorial.

Prater was arrested by Paducah Police after being released from the hospital. 

The Massac County State's Attorney's Office is charging Prater with aggravated battery with a firearm, aggravated reckless discharge of a firearm, and unlawful restraint. 

Prater has been in the McCracken County Regional Jail but will be extradited back to Illinois, where her bond was set at $1 million.
