An investigation is underway in Evansville after a man arrived at St. Vincent Hospital with a gunshot wound to the face.

The Evansville Police Department says they were called to St. Vincent Hospital around 9:00 p.m. on Thursday night where the gunshot victim had been taken by his mother.

The victim's mother told police that she had picked her wounded son up in the 800 block of Madison Ave after he called her to tell her that he'd been shot, and that she then rushed him to the hospital.

Detectives attempted to speak with the shooting victim, who was conscious and alert, but they say he refused to give many details on the incident.

Meanwhile, officers were in the 800 block of Madison Ave, where they found a vehicle registered to the victim. The vehicle reportedly had bullet holes in it and a broken driver's side window. Police say blood was located in the vehicle as well.

EPD says the victim of the shooting is expected to survive his injuries.

Police are still seeking more information on the shooting and are asking anyone who might know something to contact EPD's Detective Office at 812-436-7987 or 812-436-7979.
