Sheriff's deputies have made an arrest in the Sept. 19 shooting of a Lancaster man.

Adrian Foster, 19, of 327 Elm St., was charged Thursday with assault and battery with intent to kill.

Authorities say Foster shot a man at Sam's Place club on Old Landsford Road. The shooting victim, 18, has since been treated and released from the hospital.

Foster shot the man in the leg with a pistol after the two argued at the club about a possible stolen gun, sheriff's office spokesman Tom Holland said.

"They started arguing and it just escalated from there," Holland said.

Foster shot at the victim once. No other shots were fired and nobody else was involved in the incident, Holland said.

On Thursday afternoon, Foster was expected to be taken to the Lancaster County Detention Center, authorities said.
