SANDUSKY, Ohio (WJW) – Police are investigating after one person was injured following a shooting that happened outside the Cedar Point Sports Center in Sandusky Saturday.

Sandusky Police Chief Jared Oliver told the Fox 8 I-Team that the victim and suspect are both from Cuyahoga County and were attending a basketball tournament at the facility. The two were arguing in the parking lot when an altercation occurred and the shooting took place just before noon.
