Original 8/22/19 2:45 a.m.:

On 8/22/19 at 1:20 a.m., Officers with the Patrol Division were dispatched to the 4500 block of McPhee Avenue in reference to a report of shots fired.

The preliminary investigation found that there was a verbal altercation between one adult male in a vehicle and another adult male on foot. At one point in the argument, the male in the vehicle brandished a gun and shot the other male in the upper body. The suspect fled the scene and the victim was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. Officers have cause to believe this is an isolated incident. There have been no arrests at this time.

There will continue to be a police presence in the area as the investigation is ongoing. McPhee Avenue is currently shut down between Pine Street and Lane Street. Please seek alternative routes.
