Police are investigating a shooting incident in Lebanon.

On Jan. 9 around 10:45 a.m. police responded to the area of 12th and Buttonwood Streets for a shooting victim. Officers found 33-year-old Christopher Barrett of Lebanon with what appeared to be a gunshot wound to his lower back. He was conscious and responsive.

Barrett was transported a nearby medical facility for treatment where it was later determined that his injuries were not life-threatening.

Witnesses reported that a man in dark clothing shot at the victim as the victim ran from the area of the Beautex Playground.

Other witnesses saw a small black Honda with white rims leaving the area of the playground after the shooting.
