Prior to the officers’ arrival on scene the suspect male fled in a white SUV eastbound on South Willow Street. Officers arrived and found the victim male in a nearby parking lot with a wound below his left eye. People in the crowd that had gathered were yelling that the victim had been shot. The victim stated that he didn’t know what had caused the wound to his face.
SFD medics subsequently transported the victim to Harborview Medical Center (HMC).
