LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - An 18-year-old man was hospitalized Thursday night after he was shot in the leg while trying to sell an item at the District West Apartments at 2102 West Loop 289.

Though the man was shot at an apartment complex, he drove himself to a nearby McDonald’s restaurant at 6001 19th St., according to the Lubbock Police Department. The man then called police and authorities arrived at the restaurant about 11:45 p.m.

After he was found he was taken to a local hospital, suffering non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspects then ran from the area. Police have not made any arrests in this case but continue to investigate.

The identity of the victim has not been release; neither has a description of the two suspects.
