Man shot in the back by africans while standing in doorway



Police were questioning several individuals in connection with a shooting in which a man was shot in the back Wednesday evening.

The man, who police said was in his early 20s, was conscious and was able to tell police who had shot him about 6 p.m. at an apartment in the 500 block of West Hillyer Place. Police said the gunman was likely standing about 15 feet from the front door of the apartment and fired a shotgun, hitting not only the victim, but parts of the apartment walls and a light fixture outside the entrance. The victim was apparently in the doorway inside the apartment at the time of the shooting.

His identity and condition were unavailable Wednesday night, though police confirmed he was alive.

Neighbors said they heard two gunshots and then tires screeching. Police received information about the car in which the alleged gunman had fled, and stopped a vehicle several blocks away at MacArthur Highway and Moss Avenue. Police said they had two people in custody but had made no arrests as of 10 p.m.
