The shooting reportedly happened around 9:47pm in the area of Ashley and Alleghany Street. Police say the shooting appears to have started in the parking lot of a nearby shopping center and spilled over onto the Ashley Street.
A patrol officer reportedly spotted the victim moving slowly down Ashley Street in a Honda Accord with a shattered back window. When he got out to investigate, officials say the victim fired several shots in the air.
