Troopers said Christopher A. Gillis, 26, was standing outside the Alder Park Apartments in the area of the DD building at 51 Webbs Lane on June 7, when an unknown male suspect approached him fired several rounds at him with a handgun, striking him twice in his lower body. The suspect then fled the scene.
