Police say a man shot in Riverwest Sunday afternoon was attempting to buy drugs, not raking his leaves as they originally thought.
It happened at about 3 p.m. in the 3400 block of North Weil Street.
The man told investigators he was raking leaves in his yard when he heard a popping sound. That’s when he realized he had been shot.
Three males were seen driving away from the scene in a van with no license plates.
The victim’s condition was not released.
