Officers tell NBC Right Now 28-year-old Josue Silva stopped at a stop sign near 7th St. And East Maple. Someone walked up on foot and there was allegedly some sort of verbal confrontation. That's when the person walking on the street pulled out a gun and shot Silva. 

Medics took him to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

Officers say this is possibly gang related. 

YPD says they might know who the suspect is but they're not releasing any information on them.
