A shooting in Spring Valley was apparently a drug deal gone bad.

Spring Valley Police Chief Kevin Sangston says his department got a 911 call just after midnight this morning from a 22-year old man from Ladd who said he had been shot.  Sangston says the shooting victim was hit in the lower back and a grazing wound to the arm.  He was taken to St. Margaret’s Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Sangston says the shooting was a result of the victim’s involvement in a drug deal.  Others have been interviewed and possible shooting suspects have been identified according to Sangston.

The shooting report says the location was Cleveland Street at Strong Street.
