Montclair shooting sends one to hospital

ESCAMBIA COUNTY   --  The Escambia County sheriff's office is investigating a shooting in Montclair.

The shooting happened on Chantilly Way  around 1:30 this afternoon.

Witnesses say they heard 4 to 5 shots.
Deputies are not telling us much yet- only that they are trying to piece together what happened.

We spoke with the victim's cousin, who does not want his name or face on camera.

He says they were walking around the neighborhood when they noticed a silver car following them around.
The man inside the car started exchanging words. He believes his cousin and the man in the car were arguing over a girl.
Wanting to avoid any sort of confrontation, he left, but then heard several gun shots, only to find his cousin had been shot.

"Anytime there are bullets and guns it can scare anybody it could have hit anybody"
The victim was transported to a nearby hospital.

We don't know what condition he is in, but witnesses told us he was awake and talking when medics arrived.
