(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The St. Joseph Police Department continues to investigate a shooting that happened Monday in St. Joseph on the 1700 block of N. 36th Street.

The police department released new details Tuesday saying that it was a 29-year-old black male who was shot in the lower part of the leg. Police say the shooting happened during a disturbance with several people where a gun was produced. The victim ran away from the disturbance when he discovered he had been shot in the leg.

The victim was taken to the hospital and his injuries appear to be non-life-threatening, according to Captain Jeff Wilson with the St. Joseph Police Department.

The person believed to have fired the shot was identified by responding officers and was located and taken into custody at a separate location. The suspect is a 31-year-old black male from St. Joseph.

The shooting happened near the Brittany Village Apartments shortly at 10:00 p.m. Monday.

More hot and humid weather on the way for today with highs back in the upper 90s with some areas reaching triple digits. Use caution when spending time outside because heat index values will once again be in the triple digits for many. A cold front will start to approach our area tonight and stall to our north giving us a few chances for showers and thunderstorms overnight, however this activity will not be widespread. Temperatures will still be above average this weekend with highs in the 90s. A few lingering rain chances will continue this weekend, but much of the weekend will be dry. The cold front will move through the area early next week giving us some much cooler temperatures. High will be back down in the upper 70s and lower 80s to start off next week.
