Man taken to hospital after shot in lower back


DANVILLE, Ill. (WCIA) — Police are looking for a suspect after a man was shot in the lower back early Sunday morning.

In a release, Commander Joshua Webb said officers were called to the area of Grant and Kimber Streets. When they got there, they found the 38-year-old man who said he was walking into his home when someone started shooting at him. He was not able to give a description of who shot him. He was taken to the hospital for treatment.
