Mansfield Police are investigating the shooting of a man found near a dumpster just after 10 a.m. in the 1100 block of Harwood Apartments. Det. Ronald Packer says it appears the victim was shot once in the upper right torso. He was transported to MedCentral Mansfield Hospital. The victim is identified as 23-year-old Antonio Smith of Columbus. There are no suspects, although Packer says they are looking for a vehicle of interest. Police believe he was shot in the vehicle and dumped at the apartments. On the scanner a dispatcher said police are looking for a large black SUV, possibly a Lincoln Navigator, with chrome wheels and a six-inch chrome strip down the side. Residents say the victim was screaming for help, saying "I've been shot, I'm dying".  A police officer used a bucket of water to wash away a small pool of blood.  Smith was taken to a Columbus hospital for treatment of a single gunshot through his right arm and into his side.  The bullet is lodged near his spine.
The vehicle police are seeking is a large, upscale S-U-V, with black oversized tires, chrome wheels, and a custom grill with a smiley face.
