The incident began around 10 p.m. Sunday night at a home along the 2200 block of Harwood Avenue, near Lansdowne Avenue.
Police say an argument between neighbors escalated and one man fired five shots, one hitting the other man in the shoulder.
“Apparently, the shooter believed that the victim had attempted to burglarize his house earlier that day,” says Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood, “which is totally unfounded.”
Chitwood says the shooter then barricaded himself inside his home.READ MORE: 'I Thought I Was Done': Residents Of Trevose Mobile Home Park Pick Up The Pieces After EF-3 Tornado

No one else was injured and no one else was inside the home at the time of the shooting.
