Police investigate Roanoke River Greenway shooting

Roanoke-Police

Roanoke police continue to investigate a shooting on the Greenway that sent one person to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. It happened just before 9:00 p.m. Friday, when a man pulled a gun on another man near the Ramada Inn on Franklin Road. Police are looking for a man, approximately 5-feet, 7-inches tall, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt. There is no word on what led to the shooting or if the victim and suspect know each other. Officers patrolled the greenway over the weekend. Police have not said if that is just a normal increase for this time of year or if patrols have been stepped up because of the shooting.
