EFFINGHAM, Ill. (AP) -- Police in Effingham are searching for the source of gunfire that wounded a runner in the Little Wabash River bottoms.
The Effingham County Sheriff's Office says 21-year-old David Koester was running with his dog in the area Friday afternoon when he was shot with a small-caliber bullet in his left calf. He was treated and released from a hospital.
In response, sheriff's police say deputies set up a search perimeter and Illinois State Police conducted an aerial search.
The Effingham Daily News reports that police are asking hunters with trail cams who were in the area to check the devices for signs of human activity and contact authorities.
