One person was shot Friday outside the Moody Manor, police said.
The victim, who was not identified Friday, was shot once in his left shoulder at 2:42 p.m., Sgt. Paul Cunningham said. The victim was taken to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center.
Extra police were sent to the hospital for a reported gathering of gang members after the shooting.
The victim told police he was standing in a grassy lot at Page Street and Mayville Place when a tan Pontiac Montana pulled up and the passenger started shooting.
Police collected 14 shell casings from the scene.
Moody Manor is “claimed” by the Manor Boyz, a Bloods gang, as part of its “territory.” The central-city apartment complex and surrounding area are infamously known for gang activity and violence, including a shooting in August, 2012, that killed Keondra Hooks, 1, and seriously wounded her 2-year-old sister Leondra.
Three members of the Manor Boyz were convicted for Keondra’s death.
