GREENWOOD, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenwood City Police said a 14-year-old has been arrested after a shooting that injured a 15-year-old Monday evening.

Police say they responded to Camden Street at about 7:10 p.m. in reference to a shooting. When they arrived they located a 15-year-old boy lying on the side of the road with a gunshot wound through his abdomen. The teen was alert and conscious and was transported to the hospital, where he underwent surgery, police said.

Police say the shooting stemmed from an argument between the victim and the suspect. They say the victim attempted to run from the suspect but the suspect shot him in the abdomen and ran back to his home.

Once on scene, police say there was a 10 to 15 minute standoff between them and the suspect. They said the 14-year-old refused to leave his house. Eventually the suspect's mother came to the scene and got the suspect on the phone to talk to police.

Soon after, police say they convinced the suspect to surrender peacefully. He was then taken into custody. 

The name of the suspect has not been released due to his age.

Police said the victim was airlifted to Greenville Memorial Hospital early Tuesday morning.

The solicitor's office will determine if the suspect will be charged as a juvenile or an adult.
