STRATFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Bridgeport man is accused of shooting another man in the leg during an argument.

The Hartford Courant reports that 19-year-old Davonte Whitehurst was arrested Saturday night in Stratford on charges including attempted murder assault and carrying a pistol without a permit.

Police say Whitehurst was visiting a woman on Wiklund Avenue when her ex-boyfriend arrived and an argument broke out. Whitehurst allegedly shot the man and fled.

The man who was shot was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.

Whitehurst’s bond was set at $250,000. He is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 31.
