LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Jan. 8, 2015) – Police in Lafayette found a man lying in the street early Friday morning after he was shot.

Officers responded around 1 a.m. to find the man in the 1500 block of South Street. He was yelling that he’d been shot, police said.

Investigators identified him as Chaz Kruger, 19, Lafayette. Kruger was taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital to receive treatment for a gunshot wound. Police closed South Street for more than an hour so police could collect evidence at the scene.
