WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP (Gloucester) — A woman drove herself to a convenience store after being shot in the stomach on Saturday night, and a man has been charged with trying to kill her, according to reports.

Dawn Clark, 41, was shot four times during an argument in a vehicle with Calvin L. Green, according to Gloucester County Prosecutor Charles Fiore.  The shooting occurred during what NJ.com called a domestic dispute at the Millstream Apartments on Blackwood Barnsboro Road in Washington Township. She drove about a mile to the end of the road to an Xpress Mart where she asked the cashier to call 911, the report said.

The prosecutor said the shooting happened near the home of Green's brother, and that Green and Clark are "longtime acquaintances."

Green was taken into custody during a traffic stop and a search warrant was executed at his house, according to Fiore. He has been charged with attempted murder, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, and making terroristic threats. He is being held pending a detention hearing.

Clark was taken to Cooper Medical Center where she was treated and released, Fiore said.
