MORGAN HILL -- One man was injured after he was shot in the abdomen Friday after an argument on a residential street, Morgan Hill police reported.

According to Sgt. Carson Thomas, witnesses reported that just after 8 p.m. Friday two men were standing outside an apartment complex on the 15000 block of La Alameda Drive, just north of Watsonville Road, when they exchanged words.

Shortly after, police received reports of a "man down" in the street.
