JONESBORO — Detectives are investigating after an 18-year-old Jonesboro man was shot Tuesday afternoon.

Authorities were called around 2:30 p.m. to the 100 block of South First Avenue on the report of a person shot, Indiana State Police Sgt. Tony Slocum said in a press release.

When they arrived, they found an 18-year-old man who appeared to be suffering from at least one gunshot wound, Slocum said. Herrera was taken to a Fort Wayne hospital by a medical helicopter in stable condition.

Detectives believe a white male wearing a dark hoodie allegedly shot the man before leaving the scene in a white early to mid 2000's model car, Slocum said. A black female was also allegedly with the male at the time of the shooting. She was seen leaving the scene on foot going south.

State police troopers, Grant County Sheriff's Office deputies, and Jonesboro Police Department officers were called to the scene, Slocum said.

Detectives are still investigating the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call ISP Detective Mike Lorona at 765-473-6666.
