Shooting Investigation

On Monday, June 4, 2012 at about 8:30 p.m. officers responded to a report of a shooting at N. 50th St. and W. Center St.

Two women were walking along W. Center St. when they saw a man shooting a handgun at another man who was in the roadway on Center St. One of the women, age 19, was struck in the left leg by a bullet. She was taken to a local hospital. Neither woman appears to have been the intended target of the shooting suspect.

A short time later a 19-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the rear of his upper left leg was dropped off at another local hospital by a citizen in an automobile. The male victim indicated he had been shot near 50th and Center. He had marijuana and a digital scale in his possession. He also had open warrants for his arrest including one for possession of marijuana. The male victim was treated for his injury and discharged into police custody. The investigation is continuing.
