Shooting In Rock Island Sends One To Hospital

Updated:

UPDATE:

Rock Island police are investigating a shooting that happened just before 4:30 p.m. in the 14-hundred block of 7th Street.

Officers say they responded to a call of shots fired and a man down. They found that man in an alley, wounded, but conscious.
     
Neighbors tell us they heard it happen.

"I just heard gunshots," said a neighbor. "I heard gunshots and looking out the door with all the smoke. I guess all the shells or whatever were dropping from the gun. I actually saw that."

That neighbor went to help, putting a towel down under the man to make him comfortable.
     
He was transported to a local hospital.

Police are knocking on doors and interviewing witnesses. They ask anyone with any information to call the Rock Island Police Department.
