A 20-year-old man was shot during a fight in Winnipeg's West End.

It happened at about 8:45 p.m. on Wednesday around Young Street and Sargent Avenue.

The man left the scene after being shot and went to hospital, where police met with him. The man, who has since been released from hospital, is not being cooperative with police in the investigation, however.

What police do know is that a number of men got into an argument which escalated into a fight. That's when one of the men pulled out the gun and shot, hitting the victim in the upper body.

Anyone with more information on the incident is asked to contact investigators at 204-986-6219 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
