Billings police said Friday they have arrested a suspect in connection with a shooting on the city's North Side.

Yousef Al-Suwailem, 36 years old, was arrested Thursday afternoon following a brief chase on foot, Lt. Brandon Wooley said in a news release on Friday.

The arrest was made at about 2:45 p.m. in the area of the 100 block of North 24th Street in the same area where the shooting occurred shortly before midnight on Tuesday.

Police said the shooting sent a 37-year-old man to the hospital with injuries that are not life-threatening. His name and condition have not been released.

Al-Suwailem is being held in the Yellowstone County jail on a possible charge of assault with a weapon. He has yet to make an initial court appearance.
