EFFINGHAM, Ill. (AP) - Police in Effingham are searching for the source of gunfire that wounded a runner in the Little Wabash River bottoms.

The Effingham County Sheriff’s Office says 21-year-old David Koester was running with his dog in the area Friday afternoon when he was shot with a small-caliber bullet in his left calf. He was treated and released from a hospital.

In response, sheriff’s police say deputies set up a search perimeter and Illinois State Police conducted an aerial search.

The Effingham Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1zLbed5) that police are asking hunters with trail cams who were in the area to check the devices for signs of human activity and contact authorities.
