Shaheem Little, 23, of North Kentucky Avenue, walked into the hospital at 5:53 p.m. with a gunshot wound to the knee, McMenamin said. The injury is not considered life-threatening.

He was charged with possession of cocaine, possession with intent to distribute and possession within 500 feet of a public park.

He was admitted to the hospital for the gunshot wound and is under arrest. His bail was set at $20,000.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Detective Bureau at 609-347-5766.
