A Rock Island man was shot in his lower right leg and ankle when a loaded 12-gauge shotgun, which several people were passing around inside a house and posing with for pictures, discharged and struck him, Moline police said.

The shooting happened about 8:40 p.m. Saturday in Moline.

Patrol officers were flagged down in the area of 10th Street and 4th Avenue, and they found Zachary Inman, 18, on the porch of the home at 395 11th St., police said.

Inman was transported to Trinity Rock Island, where he underwent surgery for injuries that were not considered to be life-threatening, police said. An update on his condition or whether he was still hospitalized was unavailable Sunday.

Charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm was Matthew Nazari, 18, of Rock Island. Nazari was being held Sunday in the Rock Island County Jail awaiting bond and additional charges, police said.

Illinois State Police crime scene investigators were called to process the Christmas Eve scene.

Anyone with additional information on the shooting is encouraged to call the Moline Police Department or Crime Stoppers of the Quad-Cities at 309-762-9500.
