Lincoln Police are investigating an early morning shooting in the Near South neighborhood.

It happened just after 2:30 a.m. on Garfield Street between 20th and 25th.

Officers received multiple calls of shots fired in the area, before receiving another call of a man shot in the leg.

"After officers arrived, they immediately applied a tourniquet to help control the bleeding," LPD Captain Ryan Dale.

The victim, a 19-year-old male,  was transported to the hospital in stable condition.
