(#11-221-0136.   On 08-09-2011, around 0140, Zone 3 units responded to a person shot call at 2763 Metropolitan Parkway.  The victim, Michael Mathews was shot at least 3 times in the back.  He was critical but stable at Grady, on last check.  A witness at the scene said that 3 black males in white tank top T-shirts ran up to the victim as he was seated at a bus stop by CVS on Metropolitan Parkway.  One of the males began shooting at the victim and struck him in the back as he fled.  This was not a robbery, according to the witness.  The victim collapsed about 200 yards south of the bus stop.  The suspects were last seen running into 532 Cleveland Avenue apartments.  A canvass of the area was conducted and 2 unrelated arrests were made, one on a wanted person.)
