MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The Madison County Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting in the Toney area that left one person injured.

The incident happened around 3:30 p.m. Sunday in the area of McKee Road and Wall Triana Highway.

A group of people were hanging out in the driveway of the home occupied by the man who fired the gun when an argument ensued. The man pulled out a gun and opened fire, striking another person.

The victim and a friend jumped into a car and drove to a nearby veterinary clinic, where they called 911.

Deputies and medical personnel responded. The shooting victim was transported to the hospital for treatment; that person's condition is not known at this time.

A neighbor remembered walking outside just as police arrived at the accused shooter's home.

"There were cops, traffic backed up, I didn't know what was going on," said Lisa Beatty. "All of a sudden a guy comes walking from this direction, puts his hands up, crosses the street, lays down, and cops came and arrested him."

We have reached out to the Madison County Sheriff's Office for more information. The investigation is ongoing.
