TUPELO – One man sustained two injuries in an apparent shooting at the Sprint Mart on Briar Ridge in East Tupelo some time after midnight on Wednesday morning.

Police Chief Bart Aguirre said the victim, whose identity is not being released, told police that he was pumping gas when he heard a loud bang and started to walk away when he realized his foot was injured.

After transporting himself to North Mississippi Medical Center’s emergency department, the man was found to have apparent gunshot wounds in his calf and foot. Aguirre said the victim could not offer a good description of the shooter or a vehicle in which the shooter may have left the scene.

The investigation is continuing.
