Watertown police were called to a residence on the evening of August 4th for a reported gunshot wound.

Randy Tormanen was taken to a Watertown hospital and later transferred to Sioux Falls for advanced medical care.

Sherri Tormanen is being held in the Codington County Jail on $100,000 cash-only bond.
