Lakewood police say the 19-year-old victim had just left a private home and was headed to his car when shots rang out around 1 a.m. Sunday.
The man, who was hit in the right arm, then drove short distance away before calling police. He was taken to a hospital, where he was treated and released later Sunday morning.
Authorities say the shooting does not appear to be a random act, but declined further comment.
A motive for the shooting remains under investigation, and the name of the man shot was not disclosed.
No arrests have been made.
