The Owensboro Police Department have issued a release in reference to a shooting that took place Monday morning just before noon near the intersection of 5th and Allen Streets.

When police arrived on the scene, they discovered 24 year-old Logan C. Brown of Owensboro who had been shot in the abdomen.

Brown was transported to Owensboro Health Regional Hospital and is being treated for a non-life threatening injury.

About seven minutes after the first dispatch, officers placed 34-year-old Darrius H. Walton under arrest in connection with the shooting.

Witnesses say Brown and Walton were engaged in an argument that escalated to the point where the discharge of a firearm occurred.
