A Gettysburg man was shot in Hanover around the same time as witnesses reported hearing an apparent argument in the area, according to police.

Hanover Police Lt. Joseph Bunty Jr. said the shooting happened about 4:15 a.m. Thursday, July 26, in the first block of Fulton Street.

A 22-year-old Gettysburg man was found on the road with a gunshot wound, according to a news release from Bunty.

The victim is being treated, the release states.

Police didn't say whether the man is expected to survive or where on his body he was wounded. They also didn't release his name.

Officers detained a second man at the scene who is described as "currently a person of interest" in the shooting, according to Bunty.

Police also haven't released his name.

Online public records from the office of District Judge Dwayne Dubs don't list any recent shooting-related arrests.

Witnesses reported hearing a possible verbal dispute between males in the 300 and 400 blocks of East Walnut Street that police said is related to the shooting, the release states.

Fulton Street intersects Walnut Street in those blocks.

Anyone who saw or heard the shooting, or who has any information about it, is asked to call Hanover Borough Police at 717-637-5575, or call 911.
