Using a police helicopter and a K-9 unit, police came up empty-handed after a manhunt early Friday in the city’s West Side.
The person they were looking for is accused of shooting a man in the chest around 3 a.m. as he was opening a gate to a business on Growdon Road near the city’s impound lot.
The victim, 56-year-old Edwin Adkins, managed to flag down a driver who was passing by. The driver called 911 and Adkins was transported to University Hospital in critical condition.
Police say Adkins knows the man who shot him.
