AIKEN, S.C. (WRDW) -- A 20-year-old man has been arrested after allegedly shooting someone from his car at an Aiken park.

Officers were called to a shooting at River Bluff Park on Sunday night, which is when they found the victim with a gunshot wound in the elbow.

The victim said he called 20-year-old Russell Boyd earlier that day so they could meet and settle their differences.

When Boyd arrived at the park, the victim says they started arguing. The victim sat on a park bench while Boyd stayed inside his black SUV.

During the argument, the victim claims that Boyd put out a gun and shot him, saying, "Got anything else to say?" before driving off in his car.

The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment. There is no word on his condition at this time.

Boyd was later arrested on attempted murder charges.
