Gunshots riddled the door of a truck in the city’s southeast early yesterday morning, sending one man to hospital.
Police were called to a collision and the report of several gunshots fired in the 3200 block of 31A Avenue SE at 2:35 a.m. yesterday.
Upon arrival police found the unoccupied truck, and later the driver, who District 4 Det. Gerard Brand later said was likely fleeing his attackers, and had circled back to police for assistance.
Brand said the investigation is still in its early stages and the victim, who is known to police, “has not been forthcoming.”
Witness accounts have been very helpful, Brand said, and some noticed a vehicle leaving the scene, but are unsure if it was involved in the incident.
Police do not believe the attack was random.
The man remains in hospital in non-life-threatening condition, police said.
