A 33-year-old Roseville man is hospitalized after being shot in his driveway in the early morning March 28.

Police said the victim had gone outside to move his car out of his driveway around 6:10 a.m. Thursday morning when his wife, who was inside their home in the 26000 block of Lehner, heard a loud bang and looked outside to see her husband down on the driveway. She ran out to help him and discovered he had been shot.

Responding paramedics from the Roseville Fire Department discovered that the man had been shot once in the chest, and he was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. He has since been moved from critical condition to stable condition.

Due to the victim’s condition, he hasn’t been able to speak with police.

“We have no motives on why this shooting occurred,” said Roseville Police Chief James Berlin. “We don’t know if it was a robbery gone wrong, a random act or if this victim was targeted for another reason. We are investigating every avenue.”

Neighbors said they didn’t see anything and at press time there are no suspects in the incident.

“No witnesses have come forward, or we haven’t found any witnesses willing to talk,” Berlin said.

The investigation is in the preliminary stages and anyone with information is urged to contact the Roseville Police Department at (586) 447-4483.
