HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Huntsville police are investigating a shooting after pulling a vehicle over on Governors Drive early Friday morning.

Around 1:15 a.m., police say they pulled the vehicle over for speeding when they found out the 20-year-old passenger had been shot. The driver of the car was attempting to get the victim to the hospital.

Police on scene called HEMSI to assist and when they arrived they transported the man to the hospital. He was treated for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.

After further investigation, it was determined that shooting happened in the 2800 block of North Memorial Parkway during an argument.

Police say the car the victim was riding in had been reported stolen on October 5, and officers charged the 17-year-old driver with receiving a stolen vehicle, and a 16-year-old passenger was charged with carrying a concealed weapon without a permit. 

The investigation continues and there could be additional arrests and charges.

Parts of Governors Drive had to be blocked off.
