“Okay last night sometime after 7 pm police from precinct one were at the Police Station when a male person arrived there; he came running, his name is Reginald Garroy and he reported that he was on the corner of West Canal when he was approached by a person who fired several shots at his direction. As a result, he managed to come out of his vehicle and ran to an alley and made his way to the police station. He was observed to have two apparent gunshot wounds; one was a graze to the left side of his ears and shot to one of his fingers. He was taken to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he is still in a stable condition at this moment. Police have canvased the area so far and are looking for one male person that can assist us in that investigation.”
