Man wounded in early morning shooting Thursday

A Warren County man was shot in the leg early Thursday morning at an apartment complex in the 4900 block of Halls Ferry Road.

Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said deputies received a 911 call just after 1 a.m. Thursday that a man had been shot at the complex and arrived to find a 23-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the leg. He was treated and released from Merit Health River Region.

According to reports, the man was standing in or near the apartment complex at the time of the shooting. He told deputies he was waiting for a woman who arrived at the complex with the alleged shooter arriving about the same time.

The victim and the other man exchanged words and the man fired several shots, hitting the victim once.

Pace said the victim told police he believed the man followed the woman to the apartments, but neither he nor the woman knew the man.

The case remains under investigation and authorities have no suspect at this time.
