Police are actively investigating non-fatal incident

Police are looking for a suspect who shot a man who was riding a bicycle on Tilton Avenue in north Morgan Hill Wednesday evening.

Police responded to a report of a man with a gunshot wound on Tilton Avenue about 7:20pm April 3. When officers arrived, they located a 36-year-old man in the front yard of a residence, according to MHPD Sgt. Bill Norman.

The victim was suffering from a gunshot wound to his upper leg. Officers provided medical aid—including a tourniquet to slow the victim’s bleeding—and secured the scene for emergency medical personnel, Norman said. When paramedics arrived, the victim was transported to a local trauma hospital.

As of Thursday morning, the man was in stable condition and is expected to survive, according to police.

Morgan Hill Police officers continued to canvass the scene for evidence and interviewed a number of witnesses in the area, Norman said. Police recovered several bullet casings from the scene.

Officers think the man was shot while he was riding his bicycle on Tilton Avenue. Detectives continue to investigate the shooting and are asking for help from any additional witnesses.
