Bold Shooting Concerns Citizens

A community has big concerns after a bold shooting in broad daylight Sunday morning.

Police say someone drove up and opened fire on a man using the payphone at the corner of South Parkway and Arkansas. The unidentified victim arrived at the Med in critical condition and underwent surgery Sunday afternoon.

The crime scene was abuzz with flashing blue lights, crime tape and bullet casings just one block away from a church. Neighbors say they often turn a blind eye to the violence and other crimes on the corner, but hope that all changes.

Police think the victim and the shooter knew each other. Investigators hope to track down the shooter by talking with family members and the people the victim was visiting in the neighborhood. They also hope the victim will regain consciousness so he can give them clues to solve this crime. Meanwhile, neighbors hope the community can come together to keep this from happening again.
