A man was shot at a Newton convenience store Monday night.
The Newton Police Department responded to a report of fight involving several people at New Star, 702 First Ave. E. at 9:30 p.m.
When officers arrived they found all parties involved had fled the scene. There was damage to the store’s front door and blood at the scene.
A 20-year-old man was later found at a local hospital and was treated for non-life threatening injuries. The victim has since been released from the hospital.
A suspect has been identified and the investigation is ongoing. Police believe this is an isolated incident and not a random act of violence.
