Police are investigating a shots fired incident after two unknown suspects fired at a 28 year old victim as he exited a corner store.

An initial investigation suggests that on December 15th at approximately 2:21 p.m., a 28 year victim exited a corner store at West 2nd and North DuPont Streets. A black male wearing all black clothing began shooting at the victim who fled east on West 2nd Street. The shooter and a second black male dressed in all black then fled in an unknown direction.
