GIFFORD — A man was shot multiple times at an apartment complex and flown to a hospital in serious condition late Monday, a Sheriff's Office official said.

Detectives searched Victory Park Apartments, 3976 Lincoln Drive, which is between 31st and 43rd avenues, for evidence of the shooting that happened around 11 p.m., officials said.

They were unable to speak with the man before he was flown to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center & Heart Institute in Fort Pierce, but detectives planned Tuesday to learn what led to the shooting, said Maj. Eric Flowers, spokesman for the Indian River County Sheriff's Office.

Flowers said the man's name was not available Tuesday. He described him as a Black man in his 40s.

He said deputies found him after receiving 911 calls about a shooting and gave the man medical care until Indian River County Fire Rescue workers arrived at the apartment complex.

"Our deputies applied some life saving-tactics that they've been trained on," said Flowers.

Few details of the shooting were available Tuesday from law enforcement. Flowers said it was too early in their investigation to reveal how many shots were fired, the location of the man's injuries or the number of people suspected of having involvement in the shooting.

 "We’re looking into a variety of different things," Flowers said.

He said anyone with information about the incident should call Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers at 800-273-8477. It can be anonymous and information leading to an arrest may qualify for a reward.
