Man Shot In City
Police are searching for a Hispanic male after a shooting took place at Chadakoin Park, near the corner of Washington and Tenth streets, on Monday at around 6:45 p.m.
The victim, also Hispanic, traveled on foot to a nearby Dollar General immediately following the shooting and was further transported to WCA Hospital for non life-threatening injuries.
According to Police Chief Harry Snellings, police are searching for the shooter.
However, they need further information, including a description, because the victim has not been cooperative.
Snellings said potential witnesses were not cooperative either.
“Of course, we’re interested in finding out who was involved,” Snellings said. “We believe there were two people involved, but as of right now, unless the victim changes his mind or wants to press charges, we have nothing to go on.”
Anyone with information is asked to call 483-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
