Chief Chuck Hasty said investigators have a person of interest in the case. Investigators are trying to determine how and with what kind of object the victim, who sustained injuries to head and legs, was assaulted with.
Hasty said in a statement officers responded to a call of a person lying in the parking lot around 8:30 p.m.
The victim was flown to a trauma center after medical treatment locally.
