They said they were not sure whether he crashed first or was shot first. Neighbors had called about both incidents, beginning around 3:30 a.m.

The victim’s car entered the parking lot at the Horizon Hill apartments and slammed into a parked car, knocking it into a sign.

Both the parked car and sign sustained damage.

Police searched the area near the apartment complex and found shell casings in three different locations.

They did not locate the shooter, who was gone when officers arrived.

Police said no one was able to offer a description of the shooter or tell them whether or not that person was in a vehicle.

The wounded man remains in a hospital.
