Update: Police say the victim from the shooting has recanted his official statement and is currently not cooperating with law enforcement.

The department says the victim had previously confirmed the alleged identification of the shooter multiple times to law enforcement officers and medical personnel. Police have obtained a warrant for the victim for falsely reporting information to a law enforcement officer. Bond for that charge is set at $300.
