Shooting Victim Recovering from Surgery

A man is still in the hospital after a shooting on South Bend's northwest side.

The shooting happened late last night at Maple Lane apartment complex.

A man was shot while sitting in his SUV with his young children in the backseat.

The victim suffered four gunshot wounds, one in his arm, back, side and possibly head.

Monday he is recovering from surgery.

NewsCenter 16 caught up with a person who lives near the shooting scene. “I had just gone to bed and I heard three quick gunshots, and then a fourth gunshot a second or two later,” says Kipp Garber. "It's usually pretty quite around here. Uhh, about a week or 2 ago there were a couple of squad cars over in that direction, I think it was at the same apartment over there but not sure what they were there for."

At this time police have not released the victim's name or his condition.

Police say they are still looking for the suspect or suspects involved in the shooting.
