CLEVELAND (AP) - Police say a Cleveland man was hospitalized after he was shot during a struggle with his sister’s armed ex-boyfriend.

Northeast Ohio Media Group reports (https://bit.ly/1QqiFNZ ) the shooting occurred at a city home around 11:30 p.m. Monday.

Police say the incident was sparked by an argument the victim’s sister was having with her ex-boyfriend over a comment posted on Instagram.

Detective Jennifer Ciaccia says the man pulled a gun and fired a shot at the woman’s head, missing.

Ciaccia says the woman’s brother came to her rescue and attempted to wrestle the gun away from the ex-boyfriend. He was shot in the buttocks and was transported to an area hospital.

The victim’s condition wasn’t immediately available Tuesday afternoon.

No arrests have been made.
