Officers are investigating after a man said he was shot in the arm Friday night while leaving a party in the city, according to the Winston-Salem Police Department.

Officers went to an area hospital around 11 p.m. after 30-year-old Kirk Vernard Scales Jr. showed up with a gunshot wound to his left forearm, police said.
