Police say: No leads or developments in Tonganoxie shooting
Suspect still sought in Friday shooting
Tonganoxie police are still looking for a suspect in the Friday night shooting of a 24-year-old Tonganoxie man.
On Monday, Tonganoxie Police Chief Kenneth Carpenter said there have been no new developments in the case and there still are no suspects in custody.
The shooting took place around 6 p.m. in the 1300 block of Raintree Drive.
Tonganoxie residents who live in the area are still afraid that there is a suspect on the loose.
"They don't have a description of a car, they really don't have a physical description. I think that's the scariest part," Jacquee Penner said. "I would have been happy if they would have caught the guy a block from my house than to not catch him at all."
Police are also investigating whether it was a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
"We look at all of the different possibilities," Carpenter said. "You always at least think about that possibility."
The victim was treated at Lawrence Memorial Hospital and released the same day.
Carpenter said they are waiting on a ballistics report from the Kansas Bureau of Investigations.
