GRANDVIEW - A 21-year-old Grandview man was hit in the leg by a gunshot this past Saturday in the 600 block of East Third Street.
Grandview police say the man was taken to Sunnyside Community Hospital for treatment, and that he was likely an innocent victim of a possible gang shooting in the area.
The man was leaving a friend's house in Grandview in the early morning hours when he was hit in the leg while standing on the front porch, police said.
Officers investigating the scene found several bullet casings in the area where the shooting occurred.
Police continue to interview witnesses and encourage anyone with information to call the Grandview Police Department at 882-2000.
