Details are few regarding an early morning shooting this week in Carbondale that seriously injured one person.
Police responded around 5:18 a.m. Thursday, May 19 to a small apartment complex at 905 W. Sycamore St., just across the street from the former National Guard Armory, regarding a complaint of shots fired.
There, they found one victim who had been shot and was subsequently taken to Memorial Hospital of Carbondale with serious injuries.
On Thursday morning, Carbondale Police were swarming around the small, second-floor apartment in which the incident occurred, as well as personnel with the Illinois State Police.
Asked at the scene about the condition of the victim, Carbondale Police Sgt. Doug Wilson said the shooting was “not yet” a fatal one.
He said he could not discuss any other details of the ongoing investigation.
The shooting is the latest in a high-profile spate of violence in Carbondale this year.
So far in 2016, two people have died and six have been injured as a result of gun-related incidents, excluding this most recent case this week.
