Forest Park Police are investigating a shooting at the home of former mayoral candidate Delores Gunn.

Police say one person—not Gunn—was wounded in the incident around 5:30 a.m. Thursday. The Clayton Crescent attempted to reach Gunn, who works in medical records, via phone and e-mail Thursday morning but got no answer.

At least eight bullet holes were visible and had been marked on the side of the house in the 5000 block of Park Avenue. The home is across the street from the Forest Park Senior Center in Starr Park.
