Man shot in Gary

Gary Police Department

A man was wounded in a shooting Saturday evening in northwest Indiana.

Officers responded at 5:48 p.m. to a call for service in the 300 block of Roosevelt Street in Gary, Indiana and found an unoccupied vehicle, Gary police said.

During a search of the area, the officers found the 21-year-old suffering from a gunshot wound to his right leg, police said. The man — who lives in Indianapolis, Indiana and was visiting his hometown of Gary — told investigators that he was getting out of his vehicle when another male walked up and fired shots.

He was taken to Methodist Hospital Northlake in Gary, where his condition stabilized, police said.

Anyone with information about the shooting should call Sgt. Daniel Callahan at (219) 881-1210 or the Crime Tip Line (866) CRIME-GP.
