Police said they arrived and found a man with a gunshot wound to his leg at a downstairs apartment. The victim was in an upstairs unit with a woman when the other man showed up and shot him, police said.

One of the men is an ex-boyfriend of the woman, but it’s unclear if it’s the victim or shooter, police said.

Officers believe the victim ran to the other unit to get away from the suspect, who fled before police arrived. The suspect was later found on the East Side.

The victim was taken to a hospital by ambulance in stable condition.

Police said there was a baby inside the apartment when the shooting happened, but no one else was injured.
