A Monday night shooting near Cross and Henry St. remains under investigation Tuesday, with police emphasizing the attack was “not a random incident” in a neighborhood already struck by a drive-by shooting last August.
Neighbors reported hearing 4-5 shots – with one noting an audible scream – around 9:30 p.m. Monday, despite the ongoing effects of Hurricane Sandy.
The victim left the scene but was later found at his home with a gunshot wound to the leg. Though he was hospitalized, the injuries were not considered life threatening, Lt. Det. Marc Gatcomb wrote Tuesday morning.
“The victim, suspect, and witness were associates,” he wrote. “...This incident is not related to any crime related matters in and around the Cross St area.”
More information on the circumstances is expected later Tuesday morning.
