One man suffered a gunshot wound to his arm, a business was damaged in a shooting Wednesday night in St. Joseph.

St. Joseph police reports receiving several calls around 9:45 about shots being fired in the 2000 block of Messanie Street. Officers discovered several shots had hit a building when they arrived. Officers found not witnesses and no suspects.

About 15 minutes after officers arrived on the scene, Mosaic Life Care called to report a 30-year-old man, apparently from Kansas City, had arrived at the hospital emergency room with a wound to his arm. The wound, though serious, is not consider life threatening. The victim has been transferred to another hospital for surgery.

The investigation continues.
