A 20-year-old man was shot while walking through the Central District on Thursday night.
The victim was walking near 22 Avenue and East Cherry Street at 11:45 pm when he noticed a dark colored sedan following him. A man wearing a hooded sweatshirt got out of the car and started shooting at him. One bullet hit his leg. The victim still managed to run to a nearby gas station and dive into an occupied car. He pleaded for the driver to take him to a hospital.
The victim was dropped off at Swedish Cherry Hill Hospital with a single gunshot wound to the leg.
Officers responded to the scene and located shell casings that were place into evidence.
Anyone with information in this case is asked to call 911 and speak with officers.
