UPDATE: Authorities investigating shooting on Chihuahua Street
Officials with the Laredo Fire Department arrived at the scene and found a man in his early 20s with a gunshot wound to his right upper thigh
LAREDO, Tex. (KGNS) - Laredo police are describing how a disagreement escalated to one man getting shot.
The shooting happened over the weekend at the 3200 block of Chihuahua.
Police say two men were involved in an argument. One of the men left but later came back with a shotgun.
The two men struggled and in the process the gun fired hitting a 21-year-old in the leg.
Police say they don’t believe this is anything more than an argument that got out of hand.
“They don’t believe this is anything bigger than an argument between people that didn’t like each other, so for right now the detectives are going to collect their findings and go to the District Attorney or the Webb County Attorney to see if they can start the process of charging the person who went to start the fight,” said Investigator Joe Baeza.
The man who was shot was taken to the hospital and he confirmed to be in stable condition.
