(KMOV) – Police have identified a victim who was shot multiple times at an apartment complex in Alton Tuesday night.

This shooting at the Alton Pointe Apartments at 1020 Alton Pointe Circle in Alton, Illinois.

The first officer on the scene found the victim, Mark Allen Osborne, 29, in front of the complex with multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body.  Osborne appeared to be losing  consciousness, so the officer requested additional emergency services.

Osborne was taken by ambulance to Alton Memorial Hospital.  He was later airlifted to a St. Louis Area Hospital where he remains in critical condition.

Circumstances surrounding this shooting are unclear. However, police were taking a close look at the front porch of the apartment. A crime scene detective was taking photos and marking evidence outside the unit.


No suspects are in custody, but police are following leads associated with the shooting.
