GARY — A Glen Park man was shot in the back Friday afternoon as he and his mother left her Oak Knoll Renaissance apartment.

Brian Anderson, 21, and his mother were getting into the car when a man walked past them, then turned and started shooting, striking Anderson three times. All three bullets went completely through his body. Medics took him to the Methodist Hospitals Northlake campus where he required surgery Friday night.

Police were called to 4231 W. 23rd Ave. about 3:55 p.m. for reports of a gunshot victim.

Detective Lorenzo Davis arrived at the scene and was speaking to people in the area Friday. Anyone with information about the shooting can call him at 881-4738.
