The victim was in surgery and unable to be interviewed by police, but witnesses told police they were walking in Denton Alley, just west of Miller Avenue. That’s when four unknown male suspects fired multiple shots.

Police do not have a description of the suspects at this time, but are asking anyone with more information to come forward.
