One man is recovering from gunshot wounds after an incident in Cole County’s Westview Heights subdivision. The fight between two men apparently started because of a Thursday afternoon argument over a woman.
The victim was shot in the stomach and drove himself to St. Mary’s Health Center. He was then transferred to University Hospital. The shooter is in custody and another suspect was arrested after dragging a woman with his car.
Deputies were later called back to the Collier Lane scene because families of the victim and suspect started a fight. No one else was injured. Westview Heights sits just outside the western Jefferson City limits.
