The Hamilton County Sheriff's Department is still investigating the non-fatal shooting that happened on Sunday, August 31, in Harrison.
At around 6:08 p.m. an unnamed 22 year old, white male driver was headed west on Interstate 74 just east of the Dry Fork Road exit. He later told police that a silver, four-door car pulled along side him. The driver and passenger were both black men and one of them, though the victim does not identify which, fired at least three shots into the driver's side of his car.
He was hit by at least one of the shots and pulled off at the Dry Fork Rd. exit for help. The victim went to the BP gas station where he asked the clerk to call for help. Both the Harrison Police Department and the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department responded to the scene and the shot man was taken to the Mercy Medical Center in Harrison where he was stabilized before being transported by University Hospital Air Care to University Hospital. His condition is unknown at this time.
The sheriff's department is leading the investigation. Anyone with information is instructed to contact the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations section at (513) 851-6000 or Crime Stoppers at (513) 352-3040.
