A man was shot at a Richland apartment complex at noon Friday.

Richland police said they arrested another man in connection with the shooting at the Cedar North Apartments on 1620 George Washington Way.

The shooting was at an apartment in the B building just off Van Giesen Street next to a Walgreens. It’s unclear if the shooting was inside or outside.

Officers said they were waiting for a warrant before searching for the gun inside the apartment of the suspect, who initially reported that someone was trying to break into his apartment.

When police questioned him about the burglary, he stopped cooperating and police left. Not far away, they saw two people, one had been shot in the left hip.

The victim was taken to Kadlec Regional Medical Center with a wound that is not life-threatening, said police.

No other details about the shooting were released.
