Police have few clues in a violent shooting in Olney tonight.

Here's what is known: At about 10 p.m. tonight, police responding to a call of gunshots found a 28-year-old male lying next to a parked Toyota sedan on Sheldon Street near 3rd, Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

The victim had been shot five times in the legs and groin area, apparently after getting out of the vehicle, which he had pulled up onto the sidewalk to let traffic pass.

He was taken to Albert Einstein Medical Center, where he's in stable condition.

 There's no information on a motive or suspect, but a female witness was seen leaving the scene. She's currently being questioned by Northeast Detectives, Small said.
