DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - One man is injured after being shot in Daytona Beach, according to officials from the Volusia County Sheriff's Office.

The shooting was reported at 11:11 p.m. Friday. Deputies said they found 24-year-old Daniel Madsen lying on the ground near the corner of Old Kings Road and David Drive. Madsen, who is from Palm Coast, was transported to Halifax Health, authorities said.

A news release said Madsen's account of what happened changed "several times." He told a detective he was riding his bicycle on the street when a vehicle pulled up alongside him, according to the release.

Officials said the driver of the vehicle asked Madsen about a tattoo that Madsen owed the driver. This started an argument between the two, which eventually ended with the driver shooting Madsen in the arm and in the thigh, authorities said. Madsen ran to a nearby home to seek help.

Deputies said the investigation is active.
