UPDATE: Man treated for injuries following shooting in east Champaign

CHAMPAIGN — A 45-year-old man was being treated at an Urbana hospital on Thursday night for what police called a non-life-threatening injury following a shooting on Champaign’s east side.

No arrests had been made as of Thursday night, according to police.

Champaign Deputy Police Chief Troy Daniels said officers were called to the 300 block of East Church Street at 5:05 p.m. after receiving a report of a person who had been shot.

Officers found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound outside the home.

Daniels said police provided medical assistance to the victim until an ambulance could arrive and take him to the hospital.

According to a police report, the shooting took place outside the home.

Crime-scene tape was set up around the residence.

Crime scene investigators took photographs in the yard and a parking lot behind the house.

No description or other information about the shooter was available on Thursday night, Daniels said.

“The Champaign Police Department asks that anyone with information relating to this shooting contact the Champaign Police Department Investigations Division at 217-351-4545,” Daniels said.

Persons with information may contact Crime Stoppers at 217-373-TIPS, 373tips.com, or through a free app for smart phones called P3 Tips.

Tipsters are always completely anonymous when contacting Crime Stoppers.

All tips submitted are electronically stripped of any identifying information and processed by a third-party answering service, not law enforcement.
