A 19-year-old Sioux Falls man is recovering after being shot in the leg at an apartment complex at the 1300 block of North Cleveland Avenue this weekend.

Officers say the shooting happened just after 1 p.m. Saturday.

The victim was found in the stairwell with a gunshot wound to his left leg. He was transported with non life-threatening injuries.

Police say the suspect is described as a black man with dreads, about 6 foot tall and 180 pounds.

They say the victim is not cooperating in the investigation about who the suspect may be.

"We see cases like this all the time where victims don't really want to cooperate with police, so it makes our job really difficult to try to figure out what happened. If this was a random act, we just don't know," said Officer Sam Clemens.

Officers found a 9 mm casing on scene.
