His in­juries aren’t con­sid­ered life-threat­en­ing. Pa­trol of­fi­cers were called to Queen Mary Street near Over­brook Park at about 4 p.m. by re­ports of a shoot­ing. Nearby, they ar­rested one man who re­mained in po­lice cus­tody for “in­ves­tiga­tive pur­poses” as of Fri­day. Then po­lice learned that a man had been dropped off at an uniden­ti­fied hos­pi­tal with gun­shot in­juries which po­lice linked to the Over­brook shoot­ing. The man was ar­rested in the hos­pi­tal, where he re­mains in sta­ble con­di­tion, po­lice said.
