The Dothan Police Department responded to the 900 block of Allen Road in reference to a shooting on Tuesday.
Investigators say, Ernest Brown, 21, shot another man in the waist. It is believed that the two were arguing about property believed to have been stolen from Brown’s home.
The victim was shot when he was running away from Brown, who then entered a white Lincoln Town Car and fled the scene.
The victim was taken to the Southeast Alabama Medical Center where he was treated for his injuries and later released.
The Dothan Police Department is now seeking the help of the local and surrounding counties in locating Brown.
