At 2:55 a.m. on Saturday officers were called to a disturbance on the 1700 block of North Martin Luther King. Officers found 27-year old Jerry Crowder Jr. lying on the sidewalk in front of an apartment. Crowder had a gunshot wound to his lower torso.
It is believed that Crowder was lured to the apartments by a female suspect. While he was distracted, two unknown black males believed to be working with the female, attempted to rob him. Crowder struggled with the two men before one of them shot him with a handgun. The trio then ran from the scene.
Crowder was transported to a local hospital by ambulance and was listed in stable condition later Saturday.
