A man was injured in a shooting Saturday night at a Lakewood apartment, police said.

Police responded about 8:20 p.m. to the 5600 block of Boston Avenue after a report of a male  with a gunshot wound.

After investigation, it appears the shooting may have been the result of a struggle over a gun, and likely happened at the apartment, though the reason for the struggle isn’t clear, Lakewood police Lt. Chris Lawler said.

The man who was shot was taken to a local hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.

Detectives are doing interviews today, Lawler said.
