“Last night Police responded to a shooting incident Wednesday the 3rd of January at about minutes before 9 o’ clock where they visited the Karl Huesner Memorial Hospital and they observed one Mr. Charles Foreman a fifty-nine-year-old male person with an apparent gunshot wound to the right cheek and exited to the left side of his neck. He is listed at this member in a critical condition at the Karl Huesner Memorial Hospital; so far police has gathered that on that night he was inside of his living room when he heard several gunshots being fired; then realized he was being shot. He was in the company of other family members who escaped unhurt and as a result Police canvas the area, a male person was chased but he was able to elude the Police persecution.”

Police say that Charles Foreman was not the intended target. Foreman is at the hospital in a critical condition.
