Visalia police are identifying the suspect as 36-year-old Stephen Carlson.
Authorities say what started as an argument between neighbors quickly escalated and in the end one person was shot.
Visalia police say it all started over a disagreement between neighbors. Carlson accused a neighbor of stealing money while he and the other occupants were gone.
Police were called to the scene and left. A short time later, authorities say Carlson took matters into his own hands, grabbed a gun and fired at his neighbor's home.
When Visalia police arrived they say they found Carlson shooting.
A friend of Carlson's told Action News he was shot in the back. Police say Carlson is in the hospital in stable condition.
Meanwhile the officer-involved in the shooting has been put on administrative leave while authorities investigate the shooting.
