LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - LMPD detectives are investigating a shooting in which a man showed up at Norton Hospital with injuries.

Few details were immediately available, but LMPD spokesman Dwight Mitchell said a black man in his 30s arrived at Norton just before 9 p.m. with gunshot wounds that are not life-threatening.

WAVE 3 News reporter David Mattingly said a car riddled with bullet holes -- at least 20 on the passenger side -- was parked just outside the hospital.

Both front widows had been shot out and there were bullet holes in the windshield as well.

Lynn Choate, public relations project manager for Norton, said the victim was stabilized at Norton and then transported to University Hospital.

Mitchell released a statement for LMPD that said, "There are no suspects at this time and (investigators) have not been able to determine where the shooting took place."
