An Odessa woman is recovering after getting shot in the face over the weekend.

Now we're getting a look at the man arrested for doing it.

Deputies say Michael Thomas, 35, shot Kelley Manning, 58, in the face at a home on West 64th Street.

The shooting happened around 11 a.m. Sunday morning.

A spokesperson for UTPB tells us Manning has been employed at the university since 1995.
