A man on a bicycle was shot multiple times on Friday afternoon in south Abilene.

At about 12:30 p.m. on Friday, emergency crews were dispatched to the intersection of South Third Street and Larkin Street in Abilene to a report of a person being shot.

When emergency crews arrived on the scene, they found a man with multiple gunshot wounds.

The Abilene Police Department's public information officer, Rick Tomlin, said that it is possible that a fight broke out at another location before the shooting.

"From what we know right now is there's one victim that was shot possibly in the leg, possibly a couple of times, and also assaulted with a blunt object," Tomlin said.

Tomlin also said that while the victim was riding a bike, the suspects were in a vehicle.

Authorities at the scene interviewed possible witnesses of the shooting.

David Wetherington said that he watched the shooting happen from his kitchen window.

"First, I heard a gunshot, well, I thought it was a firecracker at first and I looked out the window, I've seen this guy in a bike getting shot by this guy in a big blue shirt," Wetherington said.

The victim was taken to Hendrick Medical Center and is expected to survive, according to law enforcement personnel.

The Abilene Police Department is actively searching for the suspects that were inside of the vehicle.
