Police respond to shooting near apartments north of Lawrence Memorial Hospital

April 1, 2012


Lawrence police responded about 3:30 a.m. Sunday to a shooting.

The victim, who was transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital, was found with critical injuries outside apartments that are in the 1300 block of Michigan Way. That's just north of the intersection of Second and Michigan streets.

On Sunday morning, Sgt. Ted Bordman of the Lawrence Police Department said there was no new information about the shooting. He said police were still investigating and pursuing leads.

Bordman said he believed the victim's injuries were non-life threatening.

Yikes! I thought that was more fireworks! ?

Nope. The last two games there have been a few shots fired instead of fireworks. The best one can hope for is the drunken fools are shooting into the ground instead of in the air. Or maybe accidentally making the choice of their own leg if that turns out to be the case.

Lucky me, I learned last night that my next-door neighbors are the proud owners of what sounded like a .40 cal. Certainly hope the shot wasn't "up", but I don't think that was the case. Lovely.

Smitty, this happened at 3:30 a.m., and we had a story up by 3:45. There was no way this could get in today's paper, which goes to print around 2 a.m.

Sorry but I think "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" is a fair amount of additional information.

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.

There was another shooting there less then two months ago. They just winged a car the first time.
