DES MOINES, Iowa — Des Moines police say a man suffered minor injuries in a shooting on the city’s east side Friday morning.
Officers were called to the 1400 block of E. 9th shortly before 8:00 a.m. on reports of shots fired. When they arrived they found evidence a shooting had occurred but no victim or suspect. A little while later they received a call from Methodist Hospital about a patient suffering from gunshot wounds.

Police say they have a good idea of the shooter’s identity and the victim and suspect did know each other. They have not yet made an arrest in the case.
The victim’s name has not been released.
