One hurt in Des Moines shooting

A man armed with a gun allegedly accosted a second man late Friday in Des Moines, but was the one who ended up being hurt.

Des Moines police said they were called to an apartment complex in the 2400 block of South 222nd Street at about 11:30 p.m. for the reported shooting.

When they arrived, they found a 40-year-old man who told officers he had been accosted by an armed man in the parking lot. The victim told police a struggle ensued and at least two shots were fired.

The attacker fled, driving off in a car and leaving a gun behind, which police took.

A short time later, a 21-year-old man showed up a local hospital with a gunshot wound to his leg. Police questioned the man, but did not arrest him.

The shooting remains under investigation.
