I am not obsessed with crime. I appreciate the extra detail. More than that, it makes me wonder once again why LJW does not print all of the available information.

Unless you are obsessed with crime and need all of the irrelevant details about someone else getting shot, I think they say essentially the same thing, Smitty.

What other news outlets print that the JW doesn't......

Police in Lawrence are investigating after an early morning shooting leaves one man with a serious gunshot wound. The call was dispatched just before 3:25 a.m. in the 1300 block of Michigan Way. One caller to 911 reported a subject in the road with a single gunshot wound. Officers arrived on scene a short time later and confirmed that a man had sustained a critical gunshot wound to the left leg.

After officers had secured the scene, LDCFM entered to treat the patient and reported the "early 20's" male's injuries to be serious. The man was transported to LMH.

Officers continue investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident and have not released any further information as of this report. There has not been any information released on a possible suspect.

Around 5 a.m., the male victim was transported from LMH to the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas.
