A man was shot by his stepson during a dispute Thursday in Little Rock, police reported.

Officers were called at 5:07 p.m. to a home at Southern Pines Mobile Home Park at 9500 S. Heights Road. They found Juan Ricardo Mayagoitia, 29, had been shot in his right leg, according to a police report. Officers applied a tourniquet to his leg and medics took him to UAMS Medical Center for treatment. Police said Mayagoitia's injuries were not life-threatening.

Mayagoitia's wife told police she was using the restroom when she heard him say something about the TV and then heard a gunshot, according to the report.

Police spokesman officer Eric Barnes said investigators believe Mayagoitia's stepson shot him during an argument. Further details were not released.

An investigation is ongoing.
