(FRANKLIN) - Franklin Police are investigating a shooting that left one man injured.

Authorities say that at approximately 1:52 a.m. on Sunday, officers responded to 1531 Younce Street on a report of a person shot. Upon arrival, police found 21-year-old Tristan Lear had been shot in his left forearm multiple times. Lear was transported to Eskenazi Hospital where he was later released in good condition.

Investigators say that the shooter and another subject had left the scene just prior to officers' arrival.

Soon after the incident, police say they located the shooter, 24-year-old Michael Lentz, and another person who allegedly fled the scene. Authorities say that Lentz is cooperating with investigators.

Franklin Police say that once the investigation is completed, findings will be forwarded to the Johnson County Prosecutor's Office for review to determine if any criminal charges will be filed.
