by Elizabeth Ruiz

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.
