New Orleans police are investigating an early Wednesday shooting at a gas station in the 7000 block of Crowder Boulevard.

Around 12:44 a.m., police responded to a call involving a 40-year-old man who was being treated at a local hospital for a single gunshot wound to the leg.

According to the victim, he was at the gas station with a friend when he heard several gunshots. The sounds appeared to be coming from an apartment complex located behind the gas station, he said.
