The Zanesville Police Department Monday released more details from a weekend shooting incident.  Captain Tony Coury says the preliminary investigation showed that an individual was found at the Speedway at 111 Maysville Avenue early Saturday morning.  Coury says the victim initially reported to South Zanesville Police that he thought he may have been shot.  He then told Zanesville Police that while walking near the fairgrounds on Pershing Road he was assaulted and shot.  The victim did suffer a single gunshot wound and was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital.  Coury says the victim’s condition does not appear to be life threatening.  No other information is being released at this time.  Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call Zanesville Police at 740 455-0700.
