GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - Gainesville Police Department is investigating an attempted homicide that happened Tuesday, around 4:40 am in the Village and Forest Green Apartments on N.E. 15th Street.

Officers responded to calls of a man saying his car was shot multiple times as he was leaving the apartment complex. The victim said 3-4 men were standing outside his car when the shots were fired, according to GPD.
