UPDATE @ 7:45 p.m.: The 30-year-old victim in the shooting reportedly is in serious but stable condition and police are looking for a suspect, Dayton Lt. Steven Bauer said. 

The man was found, suffering from several gunshot wounds, in the parking lot of Greater Allen AME Church.

The church and lot are behind an apartment complex at College Street and Howell Avenue where the lieutenant said police believe the shooting occurred. 

Officers found several shell casings at the apartment, he said, which they checked and found several gunshots had penetrated the wall to a neighboring unit.
