“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.”

Garoy’s injuries are not considered life-threatening.
