BOBTOWN – One man was hospitalized with a gunshot wound to the leg following an argument between two men Saturday afternoon outside a home on Taylortown Road in Dunkard Township.

The man, whose name was not released by state police at the scene, was taken to Ruby Memorial Hospital, Morgantown, W.Va. The man suffered a wound to the upper leg from a shotgun blast; however, police said they did not believe the wound was life-threatening.

The shooting was at the home of Delbert Wolf of Lot No. 6 at 584 Taylortown Road. Police said two men were apparently arguing in the driveway of the home when one of the men shot the other. Police declined to name the shooter and said a man was being interviewed at the state police barracks in Waynesburg Saturday evening.

Several homes are in the small housing plan. A few of the residents of the plan waited and talked at the end of the Wolf’s driveway but declined to comment on the incident.
