Detroit —  A 23-year-old man was shot early Thursday morning during an argument "about a female" off Michigan Avenue on Detroit's west side, police said.

The shooting took place about 2:45 a.m. at Greusel and Kulick, which is south of Michigan Avenue and west of Junction.

Police say the victim and another man were arguing when the second man pulled out a gun, fired a shot and fled in a black vehicle.

The victim was privately conveyed to a hospital, where he was listed in stable condition.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig, concerned about the outbreak of argument-related violence in Detroit, launched the "Check Yourself" campaign in June, appealing to people to solve their conflicts in a non-violent fashion. 

"Many times we can predict, we can prevent, we can educate and stop violence," Craig said at a press conference announcing the effort. "But when you talk about someone cuts someone off on the freeway, how do you predict that? To stop the violence, you must first check yourself. Your friends should check you."
