BELMONT (CBS SF) — A 21-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of shooting his 19-year-old girlfriend in Belmont on Sunday afternoon, according to police.

The shooting was reported in the 1100 block of Elmer Street around 12:45 p.m. The victim was transported to a hospital to be treated for wounds that were not thought to be life-threatening.
