SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

One Shreveport man is in jail and his friend is in the hospital after a shooting early Sunday morning that injured both of them.

Shreveport police say it happened just after 3 a.m. Police were called to Willis Knighton North after the men showed up in the emergency room with gunshot wounds.

Both 19-year-old Gary McCain and Darien Adams, age unavailable, were treated for injuries that are described by police as non-life-threatening.

Investigators gathered information that indicated the shooting took place near the intersection of Linwood Avenue near Oakdale Street. Upon further investigation, police say they believe the shooting appears to have stemmed from a physical dispute involving McCain and Adams "a group of offenders known to both men."

While it's not yet clear who shot Adams or whether there was an exchange of gunfire between the two men and the other group, police say their preliminary information suggests that Adams was accidentally shot in the hip by McCain.

McCain was arrested and charged with a single count illegal use of a weapon from a moving vehicle and booked into the Shreveport City Jail.
