Police said they believe the man was suffering from gunshot wounds and that his “associates” were attempting to take him to hospital in a personal vehicle.

He was taken to hospital by EMS in stable condition, according to police.

Investigators quickly blocked off both ends of the road and began going door to door looking for witnesses and video.

Police said they do not believe the incident was random.
