(LEONIDAS TOWNSHIP) – The St. Joseph County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a weekend shooting incident in Leonidas Township.

Undersheriff Jason Bingaman says just before 3 PM Saturday, deputies responded to the 30,000 block of Longnecker Road on the report of a shooting. When they arrived deputies found a man with a gunshot wound to his shoulder. He was flown from the scene to be treated for his injury.

Deputies determined that the suspect fled the scene.

The preliminary investigation shows this was not a random act, and there is no ongoing risk to the public.

The matter is still under investigation. Anyone who has information is asked to call the St. Joseph County Sheriff’s Office at 269-467-9045.
