Police have not yet issued a statement, but we spoke with a witness who was on scene. The witness, who did not want to be named, said it appeared that a vehicle pulled up and fired at the victim. The victim apparently then ran across the street and was found between a set of office buildings in the picture above. The victim was transported to a local trauma center and neither his identity nor his condition are known at this time.
Officers obtained a vehicle description and license plate according to information obtained from the scanner. Portage Police were dispatched to the residence associated with the license plate but it is unknown if any arrests were made.
