DANVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A Danville man is dead after a shooting in the small eastern Illinois city.

Danville Director of Public Safety Larry Thomason said the 30-year-old man was found inside his home around 3 a.m. Monday with a gunshot to his leg. He died later that day at a hospital in Urbana.

The Champaign County coroner’s office identified the gunshot victim as Calvin R. Cowen.

His shooting is still being investigated.

It was the second shooting in Danville in four days.

Police said a 19-year-old Chicago man was shot in the leg Friday night. The wound wasn’t life-threatening.

Police don’t believe the two shootings are related.
