The Conway Police Department responded to a shooting at Chapel Ridge Apartments Friday afternoon.

The call came in around 2:30 p.m. LaTresha Woodruff, spokesman for the Conway Police Department, said the victim reported he had come to an apartment at the complex to buy some drugs, and in the process of the transaction, the people in the apartment started shooting at him.

The victim ran out of the apartment and across the drive to another apartment where he knocked on a door and no one answered. At the second door he knocked on, someone let him in and called 911, Woodruff said. The victim was shot multiple times and was taken to the hospital. His injuries did not appear to be life-threatening, but he was being transferred to a Little Rock hospital for treatment, Woodruff said.

Police are now looking for a person of interest, 22-year-old Steven Banks, who may be driving a black Cadillac CTS, Woodruff said.
