Area police agencies were advised that the suspected shooter was a man who had been wearing a mask and a camouflage jacket. It was not known whether the suspect left the scene in a vehicle.

Investigators believe the man who was wounded and the shooter know each other.

The house where the shooting happened is on Andrews Avenue between Robinson Street and East Frederick Street. It's located less than a block south of East Middle School and a short distance west of Calvin Coolidge Elementary School.

Police advised the school district to lock down those buildings for a short time after the shooting as a precaution.
