GROTON — Police are investigating after a shooting injured a man Sunday afternoon.

Police said they were called to the rear of a home on Ledyard Avenue for the report of a shooting shortly after 3:00 p.m. There they found a man who had been shot.

Witnesses say they saw three men, one wearing a white hoodie, in a silver newer vehicle, possible a Volkswagen.

Police said the incident was as a result of a dispute over a woman and involved social media exchanges. They also believe there was an altercation prior to the shooting.

Emergency crews took the victim to be treated at L+M hospital in New London where he is expected to survive his injuries according to police.
