The Springfield Police Division responded to a shooting Thursday afternoon in the area of Todd Avenue and Selma Road.
A police report says officers found a 26-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds.
“Officers located the victim who had multiple gunshots wounds to his left abdomen area and left forearm,” he said.
The man was able to communicate with police before he was transported to Springfield Regional Medical Center, although he told officers he didn’t see who shot him.
“(The victim) could not provide any vehicle or suspect information stating that he didn’t see anything,” the report says.
He did tell police that he was with other men and was walking in an alley with the intentions of smoking marijuana when he heard gunshots and felt pain.
“It was then he knew he had been shot,” the report says.
The man was taken to Miami Valley Hospital by Careflight, the report says. His condition is unknown Friday morning.
Two other shootings have taken place since Saturday, July 14. Both of those were fatal.
