BURTON — A man was in critical condition following a shooting Aug. 2.

Around 10 p.m., police received multiple calls about the shooting in the 3400 block of Kings Lane, in Kings Lane Apartments on Hemphill Road.

Witnesses told police there was an argument between several females, and the victim, a 34-year-old Flint man, was trying to break up the altercation and keep the peace. He was shot in the neck, underwent surgery and is expected to survive, police said.
