According to police reports, at approximately 9pm Saturday evening, a man walked into the OSF Saint Francis Healthcare Emergency Room with a gunshot wound to his left bicep. 

The victim says he was by the 1300 block of Arago Street, when two black males in their young 20’s, came at him off of Starr Street and pulled a gun on him. 

Police reports state that the victim pushed the gun away and told them “no.”

As the victim did so, a shot was fired hitting him in the left bicep. 

As soon as the shot was fired and the victim was hit, the two males fled. 

One of the suspects was wearing a black shirt and blue jeans. 

Neither, at this time, have been found. 

There were no shot spotter activations in the area and police on scene were not able to find a crime area.
