QUINCY — The Quincy Police Department is searching for information about a shooting that took place near Ninth and Hampshire early Sunday morning.

The Quincy Police Department and Adams County EMS received a call at 3:17 a.m. Sunday, May 19 in reference to a subject being shot. The initial caller gave a location for the shooting, and officers were dispatched to that location. 

At 3:20 a.m., a second 911 call was received, giving the correct location of the shooting as the area of Ninth and Hampshire. Officers then responded to that location and found a male victim with a gunshot wound.  Officers provided first aid until the scene was secure and EMS crews could safely approach, which occurred at 3:24 a.m.  The victim was transported to Blessing Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

QPD Investigations Division detectives and crime scene personnel were called in to assist with the investigation.  The Adams County Sheriff’s Department also assisted with the initial response.
