SOUNDVIEW - Police say a man was shot in the leg in the parking lot of a Kmart on Bruckner Boulevard at around 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Authorities suspected the gunman fled on foot to a building at 880 Theriot Ave., but a thorough search of the building revealed the suspect was not inside. The building, which houses residents and a day care, was put on lockdown while the search was conducted.

Surveillance video from the store parking lot did not reveal information about the suspect, police say. Witnesses say the gunman was wearing a burgundy jacket and carrying a black backpack.
