Man shot on Wilson Avenue

Staff report


A 24-year-old man was shot twice about 4:30 p.m. Monday across from a home in the 1100 block of Wilson Avenue.

Reports said police were called after Juan Gabriel Santana collapsed on a person’s porch, bleeding and calling for help.

Santana was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center for wounds to his chest and knee. Witnesses told police they heard gunshots and saw Santana come out of a field on Wilson and South Garland avenues and walk toward Wilson Avenue, following a man witnesses said was the shooter.

The witnesses said they heard several more shots, and Santana then ran up to the home where police found him, trying to get inside and screaming for help.

Another witness told police they saw two men arguing right before Santana was shot. At the hospital, Santana identified the man who had shot him.
