Marion Police are investigating a shooting that sent one man to a St. Louis hospital early Sunday morning.

Officers were called to an apartment on South Bentley Street at about 12:30 Sunday morning, where they found the victim - 36-year old Ray Paul Jordan of Paducah, Kentucky.

Jordan was taken to Heartland Regional Medical Center, and then airlifted to St. Louis University Hospital.
Investigators they've arrested 41-year old Demetrius Crittendon of Marion in connection with the shooting.
