At 8:30 AM, the Marion Police Department updated us on last night's shooting in the 200 block of Hane Avenue.
According to a police report, the victim was 26 year-old Matthew Kendell of Marion. Kendell was allegedly shot in his left side under the armpit after an argument with the suspected shooter. Kendell told officers he was walking through an alley behind Hane Avenue when he stopped to urinate by a garage--this is when the shooter confronted him.
A search of the crime scene revealed a small caliber semi-automatic hand gun, which is believed to be the weapon used during the shooting.
As of now, no arrests have been made but the suspect is described as a young male, possibly hispanic, short and thin with a soft voice. The suspect also has a tattoo on the left side of his neck and was described as having "very white teeth".
