GARY — Police responded to a report of a gunshot victim Sunday evening who walked into Methodist Hospitals Northlake Campus for treatment.
Cmdr. Jack Hamady said the 41-year-old woman told officers she was hit in the arm by a single bullet about 8 p.m. while inside a vehicle in the 3300 block of East 12th Avenue in Gary.
The driver then transported the woman to the hospital, Hamady said. She was later taken to Loyola Hospital in Maywood, Illinois, where she remains in stable condition.
Hamady said the suspect is described as a white man who drove a pick-up truck.
Hours after the woman was injured, Hamady said police responded to another report of a gunshot victim in the 5100 block of East 13th Place late Sunday, just a few miles away, that ended in the death of 35-year-old Reginald Hamilton, of Gary. However, the incidents were not related.
Anyone with information is asked to call Sgt. Gregory Wolf at 219-881-1210. To remain anonymous, call 866-CRIME-GP.
