Police are looking for the person who shot a man outside Olde Towne Apartments on Highway 64 in Plymouth.

Plymouth Police Chief Steve O'Neal tells 9 On Your Side it happened around 8:30p.m. Sunday.

A neighbor at the apartment complex called police.

When officers got there, they found a 36-yr.-old male lying in the parking lot in front of building #6.  He had been shot twice in his upper body.
