CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WAND) - At least one person was wounded in a Tuesday night Champaign shooting. 

Police confirmed there is at least one victim in a shooting at Blue Star Liquor, located at 918 W. Bradley Ave. in Champaign. 

According to officials, on June 8, at approximately 10:01 p.m., Champaign Police were dispatched to the 900 block of West Bradley Avenue for a report of gunshots heard in the area.

As Police responded, they were informed that a victim suffering from gunshot injuries had arrived by personal vehicle at Champaign Fire Department's Station 3, 702 West Bradley Avenue.

When officers arrived they learned that a 28-year-old male victim, had sustained gunshot wounds to his hip and lower extremities.
