Fairbanks police are investigating a shooting that left a man with multiple gunshot wounds.
Police say 28-year-old Lawrence Lee Perdue continues to be treated at Fairbanks Memorial Hospital.
“Perdue has made it through surgery and is sedated in the ICU,” officer Doug Welborn said in an update at 5 p.m. Wednesday. “That is the most updated status we have for him at this time.”
A witness called police just before 10:30 p.m. Tuesday to report four to five shots had been fired near the 1000 block of Stewart Street east of Growden Park.
The witness also reported a silver sedan leaving the area at high speed.
As officers responded, dispatchers took a report that a man with gunshot wounds had been dropped off at the hospital.
Police found shell casings and broken glass at the shooting scene. They don’t know if the glass was from the car that dropped off Perdue or another vehicle.
Police encouraged witnesses to contact them by calling 907-450-6500.
