The investigation into why a man was found on Lincoln Street with a gunshot wound to his leg is ongoing, and “leads are being followed,” according to Acting Morris County Prosecutor Fredric Knapp.
The incident occurred just after 5 p.m. Friday when Morristown Police responded to a car crash on the residential road. When authorities arrived they found a car had crashed and the driver had “severe bleeding to the leg,” according to dispatch calls made on Friday.
There is no threat to the community, Knapp said, and the incident is not considered to be random.
The investigation is ongoing and “all leads are being followed and thoroughly evaluated,” Knapp said Wednesday morning. The authorities are urging anyone with information about the incident to call Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Unit at 973-285-6200 or Morris County Crimestoppers at 800-SHERIFF.
