A Lawrence man was treated at Lawrence Memorial Hospital on Tuesday night for a gunshot wound to the leg following an incident in the 2500 block of Redbud Lane, Lawrence police said. The man's injuries were not life-threatening, police said.

The incident occurred after 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. There was a dispute at a second-story apartment in a complex, said Lawrence Police Sgt. Dave Hubbel. Witnesses reported seeing two men get into a maroon car and head south on Redbud and one person get into a green car and head north.

Within roughly 15 minutes of police arriving on the scene, police received a report of a gunshot victim at the BP station at 19th Street and Haskell Avenue, Hubbel said. The victim was a resident of the complex and had been living there for less than a month, Hubbel said.

Tabitha McCoy, a resident in the complex, said she heard a loud noise that could have been a gunshot. She went outside to see what was happening.

"Two gentlemen were running down the stairs, jumped in a car and took off," she said.

"Within roughly 15 minutes of police arriving on the scene..." Exactly the reason why I don't trust the police to provide personal security. Exactly why CC is a good thing. In Glock, I trust.And why doesn't this report tell us about the gun used, how it was obtained, and the 2 men's criminal background? You KNOW that if it was a CCH licensee who shot the man, it would be plastered all over the article and headlines. "CCH Holder Shoots Innocent Victim" would be the title.

Hey Smitty AKA Plumber's Crack AKA Mike Capra-the gunshot victim went to 19th and "Haskell" not Barker, and that was not where the shooting occurred. If the shooting victim went to 7th and Mass, would you have commented on that? Idiot.

I was told and believe that the north half of the Bud has been cleaned up somewhat. It's the south end "Sunflower apartments", where all the trouble makers live. The property is soon to be under different management and the place will get cleaned up with time. The bad ones are moving to South Point and Gazebro apartments, as well as, the hotels in town that accept cash rather than credit. Jayhawk, College Motel, EconLodge, HallMark Inn and a few others like Virgina Inn and Westminster Inn.
