Officials said the shooter was last seen running into the apartment complex.

Outside the gates on Fournier Street investigators located about a half dozen shell casings and other evidence.

They said it appears that is where the shooting happened with the wounded man making his way onto the apartment complex property.

Witnesses reportedly told police that the man who was shot was suspected of breaking into cars in the parking lot.

Police said although there had been a party on the property earlier, they're not sure if it had anything to do with the reason for the shooting.
