The victim sustained a gunshot wound to the neck at about 7 p.m., according to police. He is presently in stable condition at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center.
A fight between the victim and the suspect turned for the worse leading to gun fire. Police responded to the shooting after receiving alerts of gunfire in the area.
