BLOOMINGTON — While detectives continue to investigate a Tuesday afternoon shooting, they are also looking for information about a Saturday morning shooting on Tracy Drive.

At 1:22 a.m., officers were called to the 1900 block of Tracy Drive for a report of shots fired. Police found bullet holes on the outside of an apartment building and shell casings in the area, but found no victim. Based on surveillance video recovered in the investigation, police said one person appeared to be struck by a bullet, suffering injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening. However, that person has not sought medical treatment or law enforcement assistance, police said Saturday morning.

On Wednesday, police confirmed a single adult victim but declined to share other details.
