At about 3:16 p.m. on August 24, 2021, Seventh District officers responded to a call of an aggravated battery by shooting in the 3900 block of Downman Road, at or around 3:16 p.m. Upon arrival, officers discovered an adult male victim outside lying on the ground suffering from apparent multiple gunshot wounds to the body. The victim was transported to a local hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead.
