Spotsylvania County authorities are looking for a man suspected of shooting another man Tuesday night.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Captain Liz Scott said deputies responded to the 5000 block of Blarney Street about 6:30 p.m. and found a 24-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the upper body. The man was taken to a local hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

The shooter, 40-year-old Tyson McClain, left the scene before police arrived, Scott said.

Scott said the victim and McClain got into an altercation outside a residence. At some point, McClain pulled out a gun and fired a shot.

Scott said McClain was last seen wearing blue pajamas. Anyone who has information pertaining to the crime can call the Sheriff’s Office at 540/582-5822 or 800/928-5822.
