Ex-UFC star Jorge Masvidal's home site of shooting, one in custody: reports
A person was shot at the Miami-Dade County home of former UFC fighter Jorge Masvidal on Thursday.
Miami-Dade police arrived at the residence shortly after 3 p.m. ET and took one person into custody – the victim was sent to a local hospital in stable condition.
Police said the former fighter himself was not a suspect, but they did say the person in custody is an older relative of the former fighter, WSVN-TV reported.

Detectives said it was a domestic dispute that led to the shooting.
The person was shot twice in the upper part of the body, but the injuries are not considered to be life-threatening.
The shooting is under investigation. None of those involved have been identified.
