The incident occurred around 12:45 a.m. on September 23, when troopers were dispatched to the 23000 block of German Road for a shooting.  A 40-year-old male victim was found walking in the vicinity and indicated he had been shot. The victim was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

According to police, the victim was walking on German Road in the area of his residence when three unknown black males, between 25 and 29 years old, got out of a vehicle, approached him and requested money. When the victim advised that he didn't have any, one of the suspects pulled out a gun and pointed it at him. The suspects forced the victim back to his residence, where police said they physically assaulted him and restrained him from leaving.
