Police say a man remains in critical condition after a shooting Sunday morning.

It happened near Stratford and Carroll avenues.

The victim spent Sunday in surgery, and police say it appears he will pull through.

"I'm praying," says Wayne Winston, a friend of the victim's family. "When you pull out guns and shoot each other, that destroys our community."

Police say the shooting was captured on surveillance video, and they hope to make an arrest in the case shortly.
