8/17/17 West Lafayette police

Police say they have isolated a person of interest in the shooting of Troy Moffitt, a 22-year-old Lafayette man.

Five officers were dispatched around 4:20 a.m. following reports of gunshots at an apartment complex near the 1100 block of Windsor Drive, just north of Lindberg Road, West Lafayette Police Department Lt. Jonathan Eager said.

A subsequent call reported that someone had been shot, and "police arrived to find the gunshot victim," Eager said. Officers rendered aid until paramedics arrived to take Moffitt to a local hospital.

Moffitt was then transported to an Indianapolis hospital, Eager said. His condition is unknown to WLPD.

"We have a person of interest," the lieutenant said. "I don't think the community is in danger."
