Upon arrival, officers located a 48-year-old man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was transported to a local hospital and is listed in stable condition at the time of this release.

During the investigation, officers were advised that a 31-year-old male, later identified as Michael Willis, reportedly shot the victim and then subsequently left in a vehicle.

Minutes later, Willis returned and proceeded to shoot towards the victim again. He then entered his residence in the 1600 block of 4th Avenue, where he remained.
