Victim in apartment shooting still hospitalized

Days after being rushed to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, officials said a man is still in critical condition after being shot in his vehicle Wednesday at the Harbin Terrace apartment complex.

The shooting occurred in the parking lot of the 1701 West Pensacola Street apartment complex, near from Doak Campbell Stadium and about eight miles from Florida A&M.

Tallahassee Police Department spokesman, David McCranie, said a man was sitting in his car near building two when gunfire erupted.

McCranie said according to witnesses in the area, the victim’s white Chevy Tahoe SUV was facing North toward Pensacola street when four to six shots were fired into the driver’s side window.    

Witnesses said they saw the paramedics take the man out of the car before taking him to a local hospital.

McCranie confirmed they do not have a motive, and no suspects are in custody, but he said they are working on a possible lead.

Due to the ongoing investigation McCranie said he couldn’t release the identity of the victim or possible suspects.

No staff members were available to comment. Residents and other people living in the area were fearful to comment on the shooting.

According to the property’s Web site, Harbin Terrace is a family owned apartment complex, and has been serving the Tallahassee community for 40 years. The Web site said the dedicated staff work hard to make the living for residents comfortable and welcoming.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Tallahassee Police Department at 891-4200, or the Crime Stoppers hotline at 574-TIPS.
