Police in Wilmington say bloody footprints led officers to find a 40-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound.

Police say officers were called to the 1100 block of Read Street on Friday afternoon for the report of a shooting. The man was located a short time later. He had been shot in the foot.

Investigators say it appears the victim was inside his home when a suspect began firing into the residents. Two suspects then fled the scene. The victim ran to another home nearby.

The victim was listed in stable condition on Saturday.
