Detective Sgt. Joseph Mucci said Terrence Jackson has been on a breathing tube since undergoing surgery following the shooting, and that has prevented police from interviewing him about the attack.
"Not only is he a victim, but he's a witness in this case," Mucci said. "He can tell us who in fact did this to him, if in fact he does know, or give us a better description on who the suspect is."
Jackson was shot shortly before 6:30 a.m. Friday at 145 Orange St. and managed to stumble outside before he collapsed, bleeding, according to witnesses.
One upstairs neighbor said she heard the sounds of men arguing on Wednesday, and it sounded like someone was threatening Jackson.
Mucci said criminal activity has increased in that area of the city. He noted it's just a few blocks from the scene of a May 18 homicide that remains unsolved.
"It is a tough neighborhood," Mucci said.
And while police have increased their presence in the area, Mucci said they need the public's help. "Neighbors need to be vigilant and call us when they see anything they feel is suspicious," he said.
Mucci said he can't comment on whether drugs may have been a factor in what happened on Friday because the investigation remains ongoing.
Manchester has changed, Mucci said.
"It's not a small town anymore," he said. "It's the largest city north of Boston. We have big-city crime now."
