  • A man who was shot in both his legs turned up a Leavenworth hospital over the weekend. But he didn't provide police with information about the shooting, which is believed to have occurred in north Leavenworth, a police spokesman said.
    Police became aware of the shooting after receiving a 911 "hang up" call around 2:20 a.m. Sunday, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.
    The call apparently originated in the 700 block of Pottawatomie Street. Officers went to that location and found a large amount of blood in a parking lot.
    "There were several shell casings in the street," Nicodemus said.
    He said police contacted the local hospitals to find out if they'd received any patients with gunshot wounds.
    Saint Luke's Cushing Hospital had just received a walk-in patient with wounds to his legs. The 23-year-old man's injuries are not considered life-threatening, Nicodemus said.
    "At this point, that's essentially what we know," he said.
    The deputy chief said police were not able to get any information about what happened from other witnesses who were interviewed.
    He said police will continue to investigate what happened.
