CEDAR RAPIDS — Police are working to identify a vehicle involved in a shooting Friday in southeast Cedar Rapids that left one person injured.

Officers were called about 8:20 a.m. for a report of a shooting. They found a 25-year-old man near Mount Vernon Road and 19th Street SE who had suffered what appeared to be non-life- threatening gunshot wounds, according to the Cedar Rapids Police Department
