NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) - A joint investigation is underway by the New Albany Police Department and Indiana State Police into an overnight shooting that wounded one man.
According to New Albany Police Chief Todd Bailey, the shooting was reported at 1:44 a.m. in the 100 block of Woodland Drive. Around the time officers were being dispatched on that run, NAPD received a call from Baptist Health Floyd reporting that a man with a gunshot wound had driven himself to the hospital. Bailey said his officers quickly discovered the two runs were related.
The 18-year-old who was wounded was transferred to University of Louisville Hospital for treatment where he was expected to undergo surgery.
Details about the incident have not been released, but Bailey said the person who shot the man has cooperated with the police investigation.
