Soon afterward police received a call at Lakeview Palms, 5200 block of Gulfway Drive, and located a shooting victim there.

The victim was brought to a hospital for treatment and is in stable condition, Duriso said.

Police are seeking his cooperation, Duriso added.

According to the chief, detectives do not have a motive to the shooting and do not know why the victim drove to Lakeview Palms, as he does not live at either apartment complex.

Police have a description of the alleged suspect but no suspect information is being released to the public as of Monday afternoon. No arrests have been made.

Duriso said aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charges would be filed in the future.
