A man was transported to the hospital with injuries after he was shot Tuesday night off Old Hammond Highway following an argument, said East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks.

Two men got into an argument that ended when one shot the other and then ran from the scene, Hicks said. The incident took place around 9 p.m. in the 1000 block of Manson Drive. 

The shooting victim was transported to the hospital and the extent of his injuries remains unknown, Hicks said.

The investigation is ongoing.
