Police arrived soon after shots were fired and cleared the scene after a couple of hours. A witness told ABC 57 he saw a group arguing on the way into a convenience store, then starting to brawl before the gunshot went off.

The victim is being treated for non-life threatening injuries. A suspect has not been identified yet and the investigation continues.

Tuesday, Benton Harbor police released information on a person of interest in the shooting. 19-year-old Jarrod Fitzgerald Guidry Jr. is being sought.
