      GREEN BAY - A Green Bay resident was shot in the back after walking down the street early Sunday morning.

      Police responded to a call around 1:24 a.m. to a possible shooting in the area of North Webster Avenue and Cherry Street.

      A citizen reported seeing a man get shot while he was standing in the street and several other people running away.

      Police went to the area and could not find any witnesses or victims.

      Around 2:12 a.m., a 23-year-old Green Bay resident arrived at a local hospital with a gunshot wound in the middle of their back. The gun used was a small caliber handgun. The victim has been released from the hospital.

      The victim said they were walking near the 100 block of N. VanBuren Street when they were confronted by a group of men who asked them for change.

      The victim said one of the men showed a handgun and as they ran away from them, they were shot in the back.

      The police have identified several individuals involved, including the 17-year-old shooter, and have recovered the gun they believe was used.

      Police are requesting charges of attempted first degree homicide and armed robbery.

      The incident is still being investigated.
