Police arrested a man in connection with a shooting in Northview Heights over the past weeks
Police arrested the man earlier this week on suspicion of attempted murder, for his part in an altercation and shooting. The 35 year-old suspect was allegedly found unconscious at about 11:30 pm on Saturday, lying on the ground with a gunshot wound to the leg and bleeding from his mouth. According to the criminal complaint, the suspect and three other men were involved in a fight which was broken up by a security guard.
The suspect then allegedly pulled out a gun and a struggle ensued. Police believe that both the suspect and the victim were shot during the struggle, and the suspect may have accidentally shot himself in the leg. The victim was also found on the scène with a gunshot wound to the groin.
