The Great Bend Police Department is investigating a shooting that occurred the afternoon of March 2, but was not reported.
According to Police Chief Dean Akings, the victim is a Hispanic man who was sitting in a car in the 2400 block of Sixth St. at 3:45 p.m. when he was approached by another male.
“The male suspect told the victim he was going to take his car. The victim said ‘no you’re not.’ The suspect pulled a gun and shot the victim,” Akings said in a statement for Crime Stoppers. “The victim did not report this or get medical attention. A red SUV and a gun-metal gray vehicle were seen leaving the scene, and possibly saw the shooter.”
