A man was shot in Cottonwood after allegedly attacking his ex-wife's boyfriend.

The Shasta County Sheriff's office says at around 12:30 Saturday afternoon, they were called to Willow Street in Cottonwood, where they say 30-year old Joseph Ruth was fighting with 25-year old Tanner Bull.

Ruth had a gunshot wound to the leg, but investigators found he started the fight.

Ruth was arrested on charges of battery and making criminal threats.
