Ann Arbor police are investigating after a man was shot and wounded near the University of Michigan campus on Monday night.

Family of the alleged victim says the incident occurred over a parking spot. 

According to police, the shooting happened around 9:30 p.m. in the area of State St. and University Ave. which is on the border of the UM campus. 

Two men were having an argument when the 24-year-old man from Ann Arbor pulled out a gun and opened fire on the 43-year-old man.

The sister of the man who was shot declined to go on camera, but says her brother is a delivery driver. She says that he was unloading things from his truck Monday night outside of a Walgreens when a man argued with him about a car being blocked. 

The alleged suspect started knocking crates down and pushed the woman's brother, she said. Her brother pushed him back. That's when the suspect pulled out a gun and shot the alleged victim in the stomach.

The 43-year-old man was taken to U of M Hospital and is expected to be OK. Police arrested the 24-year-old man.
