QUINCY (WGEM) - Police said one person was injured following a shots incident in the 1100 block of Jefferson Street late Wednesday night.

Police said they responded to the scene around 10:15 p.m. and found a 47-year-old victim.

They said the victim was taken to Blessing Hospital for treatment, and then air lifted to Springfield. There was no word on the extent of their injuries or condition.

Sergeant Nick Hiland with the Quincy Police Department said officers were looking for physical evidence on the scene and video surveillance from neighbors.

An officer on scene said they were questioning neighbors.

A WGEM reporter talked to neighbors who said they heard multiple shots and someone yell for help.

“We ran out and this lady was just shot, somebody just drove by and shot her and they were just sitting on the porch enjoying the night,” neighbor Tomeka Reiberg said.

Hiland said neighbors have been cooperative in the investigation so far.

The Quincy Police Department, Illinois State Police, Quincy Fire Department, and EMS all responded to the call.
