GOSHEN — A 44-year-old man was shot four times Friday, Oct. 5, outside his home at 1310 W. Clinton St., according to a press release from the Goshen Police Department.

Police are searching for the suspect, who was described as a young man wearing a dark, hooded sweatshirt and jeans and was seen by witnesses fleeing the area.

The victim was flown to a hospital for treatment. Neither his condition nor the hospital where he was taken is known.

Police received an emergency call at 6:12 p.m. about possible male gunshot victim lying on the ground behind his home near Riverside and Clinton.

Police closed the street in front of the residence and officers were seen searching for evidence in the area.

Neighbors said the man lived alone and was very quiet. Overall, they said it’s a quiet neighborhood without much crime. They were not sure what the man’s name was. Wallace Kehr, who lives in the neighborhood, said the man had lived there about a year.

 FILE - This Feb. 9, 2013 file surveillance photo provided by the FBI shows 73-year-old Walter Unbehaun, an ex-convict from Rock Hill., S.C., during a bank robbery in Niles, Ill. Unbehaun allegedly told investigators he intended to get caught so he could live his final years behind bars. On Thursday, April 17, 2014, Unbehaun is scheduled to be sentenced in Chicago. In 50 years, he has spent just six out from behind bars. His case highlights a wider societal dilemma about what to do with an increasingly elderly ex-cons, many of whom spent so much of their lives inside prison that they, like Unbehaun, can't cope with life on the outside.
