Share this post

Police in Gary are investigating a shooting just before 11-o'clock Wednesday night. Corporal Gabrielle King says a 62-year-old man was in the area of 5th and Colfax when he saw two men at a gas station that he believed had been watching him. The two subjects then later approached as the man was walking south on Colfax and when he got to about  the 700 block, the two subjects approached him, demanding his wallet.  Police say the victim gave them his wallet, then one of the subjects pulled out a gun, fired a shot, striking the man in the leg.  Police say they all left the area, but emergency personnel were able to locate the victim.
