A man was shot in the arm Wednesday evening while standing on a sidewalk in the Bayview district, police said.
The 59-year-old man told police he was at the corner of Palou Avenue and Crisp Road about 6:17 p.m. when an unknown suspect approached him and shot him, police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said. The suspect fled on foot and has not been found.
The victim was taken to a hospital, but his injuries are not considered life-threatening, Andraychak said. He was cooperating with the investigation.
Andraychak said the incident is not believed to be gang-related, and the victim did not indicate that he knew his attacker.
