Authorities are looking for a suspect in a shooting that left a Leavenworth man wounded, a police spokesman said.

The shooting was reported at 6:44 p.m. Monday in the area of Second and Vilas streets.

The suspect reportedly approached the victim, a 41-year-old Leavenworth man, who was seated in a parked vehicle. The suspect reportedly fired a gun, and the victim was struck in the face, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.

The suspect left the scene.

The victim was driven to Saint John Hospital by a friend.

Nicodemus said the victim's injury is serious, but it is not considered to be life-threatening.

“We know who the suspect is, and we're looking for the suspect,” Nicodemus said.

He did not provide other details about the suspect.

Nicodemus said determining a possible motive for the shooting will be part of the investigation.

Members of the Leavenworth Police Department also continue to investigate a shooting that was reported April 18 on Sixth Avenue. In that case, the victim also had been in a vehicle when he was shot.

Nicodemus said the two cases are unrelated.
