At the scene, officers found a man in his vehicle with a gunshot graze wound to the head.
Video from the scene showed a white SUV with a busted window.
The man was taken to the hospital in stable condition — where investigators hoped to talk to him and get more information about what happened.
A preliminary investigation found that the man was shot while driving, though it was unclear exactly where he was when he was struck. He rolled to a stop after he realized he was hurt.
Investigators said many shell casings were found at the scene.
