The victim was treated for a non-life threatening injury.

Then at 12:42 p.m., police responded to the 2400 block of Marsha Way on a report of a suspicious circumstance involving a man covered in blood who was driving recklessly in a white truck.

Police checked the license plate and discovered the truck was reported stolen. The man driving the truck provided his name and said he was shot, police said. He got out of the truck and fled.

The victim from the assault earlier on Scott Street provided the suspects name. The suspicious person on Marsha Way claiming to be shot had the same name.
