One person is shot and another arrested during a shooting Tuesday night just north of Columbia.

KRCG reports officers received the call shortly after 6 p.m. to investigate a shooting at a now-defunct café in Sturgeon, located just off Old U.S. 63.  When they arrived, they found one male victim with a gunshot wound.  He was taken to a Columbia hospital.  There’s no word on the extent of his injuries. 

Another man was taken into custody at the scene for questioning.  The Boone County Sheriff’s Department says they have no reason to believe the community is in any danger.
