Authorities swarmed a residence at 1627 Tower Ave. this afternoon after a man was shot there.
The suspect remains at large, according to Capt. Chad La Lor of the Superior Police Department.
Superior police and other authorities responded to the residence around 1:15 p.m. today for a report of a shooting. The victim, who was shot in the lower neck/upper shoulder area with a hand gun was transported to a Duluth hospital, La Lor said.
“He was able to walk to the ambulance from here,” the police captain said when asked how serious the injury was.
The victim was a resident of 1627 Tower Ave., but his name was not released. It was not clear how, or if he knew the shooter.
The suspect is described as a black male about 6 feet tall with a medium build. He was wearing blue jeans and had a silver-colored handgun, La Lor said. More information on the shooting is expected to be released later today.
