UNION GROVE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A 21-year-old Racine man is in the hospital and another man is in custody as the Racine County Sheriff's office investigates the first shooting in three years in the Village of Union Grove. 

During a press conference Thursday, Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling said the shooting is believed to be drug-related. The 21-year-old man is recovering from non-life threatening injuries. 

The Sheriff's Office says two men from Racine were sitting in a vehicle at the Cathedral Court apartment complex at 1400 West Street when the shooting happened around 6:00 a.m. Thursday. 

According to investigators, the 21-year-old victim was shot several times in the calf by a 22-year-old Racine man who was in the car with him. Both men then ran out of the vehicle and one of them called 911. The Sheriff's Office says both men are known to law enforcement. 

"The suspect is in custody and is being held in the Racine County Jail on a felony probation hold and the victim is being treated at a local hospital and is also going to be under arrest when he is done at the hospital," Sheriff Schmaling said Thursday. 

The Sheriff wouldn't say what the victim would be arrested for but believe it is an isolated incident and that there is no danger to the public.
