Newark Police have identified the village man who was injured during a shooting last Friday. He is 42 year old Larry Walrad of that village, and he remains in guarded condition at Strong Hospital.
Police say Walrad was answering his own door at a home on Silver Hill Road when someone shot him through the door. Officers say Walrad had turned to run when he saw the gun.
He was shot in the buttocks and the bullet passed through his body.
Authorities believe this was not a random attack. The police chief says it was the first shooting in Newark in at least six years.
