Police in Normal said a man is in stable condition following a shooting Tuesday night.

The Normal Police Department said officers are investigating a shooting they describe as an attempted murder.

Assistant chief Eric Klingele said officers from NPD and Illinois State University were called to the area of College Park Drive and Hancock Drive in west Normal at about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday for a reported shooting.

Klingele said officers found an adult male victim with a gunshot wound. He was conscious and lying in the roadway, Klingele said.

The victim was taken to Carle BroMenn Medical Center in Normal. He is listed in stable condition as of Wednesday afternoon, Klingele said.

“Detectives are investigating the possibility of a targeted attack on the victim,” Klingele said, adding no one else was injured in the incident.

NPD asks anyone who was information on the case to contact detective Darren Wolters at (309) 454-3415 or dwolters@normal.org.
