The Jamestown Police Department said it is looking for information following a shooting that sent a man to the hospital Thursday morning.

Officers were called to the area of 707 Jefferson St., between West Seventh and West Eighth streets, around 11:45 a.m. after receiving word that a man had been shot. The department had been notified moments earlier of several shots being fired in the same area.

An investigation found that a man had reportedly been shot during an argument in the front yard of the Jefferson Street residence. The victim was able to drive himself to UPMC Chautauqua where he received treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, JPD said in a news release.

No motive for the shooting was released. However, police said the incident was targeted and not a random act of violence.

Police remained on scene for several hours, and the area was cordoned off to the public.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Jamestown Police Department at 483-7537, through the anonymous tip line at 483-8477 (TIPS) or via the Tips 411 cellphone app.
