LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – The Douglas County Sheriff says the shooting of a man on Highway 59 south of Lawrence apparently was not a random act of violence.

Twenty-four-year-old Skylar Workman of Lawrence was shot Monday night as he drove on the highway. Investigators said in a news release Wednesday the shooting was likely not random violence but said they would withhold a final decision until the investigation is over.

Workman is recovering at Stormont-Vail Hospital in Topeka.
