A Delaware man who came to Chattanooga to deliver a car was shot in the chest Wednesday night.
Joel Deleon was supposed to meet Baleriano Morales near the corner of Chamberlain and Dodds avenues, according to an email from Chattanooga police spokeswoman Sgt. Jerri Weary, but he had ended up near East Third Street and North Holtzclaw Avenue. Deleon called Morales and told him to meet him on East Third Street.
When Morales arrived, he found Deleon had been shot in the left side of his chest, according to Weary.
Deleon was transported to a local hospital, and as of 2:45 p.m. today he was in fair condition at Erlanger hospital.
Weary said Chattanooga police do not know why, where or by whom the man was shot.
