Authorities have identified a “person of interest” in the case of a Leavenworth man who was shot while watching television inside his home, a police spokesman said.

No arrests have been made.

“We’re evaluating some additional evidence,” Leavenworth Police Chief Pat Kitchens said.

The victim, a 22-year-old man, was shot in the abdomen while at his home April 29 in the 700 block of Kiowa Street. He was taken to the hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening.

Police believe the culprit fired shots from an alley outside the residence.

Kitchens said it may take several days to evaluate the additional evidence. But he anticipates the police will make a presentation to prosecutors at some point.

A shot also was fired into a house April 28 in the 1000 block of North Broadway. But in this case, no one was injured.

Kitchens said police are not ready to draw any definitive conclusion regarding whether the two cases are connected.

“We always evaluate that as a possibility,” he said.
