Police are investigating a shooting at a Colorado Springs convenience store.
Just before 5 a.m., police were called to the 7-Eleven on the 1800 block of South Nevada on reports of a shooting. The victim, a 21-year-old male, was found with a single gunshot wound to the chest/upper arm area. He has been taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
A Ford Focus was found in the area with blood on the interior. Police believe at some point the victim was inside the vehicle.
