ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Roanoke Police responded around 12:30 a.m. Sunday to the 1800 block of Downing Street NW for reports of a shooting. They found a man with what they said was a non-critical gunshot wound.

Roanoke Fire-EMS took the man to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Police determined the man was at a nearby home at the time of the shooting, which followed a fight with another man, who then ran off.

Roanoke Police say there is no apparent connection between this incident and a Saturday night murder along Gayle Street, and ask anyone with helpful tips to call 540-344-8500. A text message may also be sent to 274637 (beginning the message with “Roanoke PD” to make sure it is sent properly). Phone calls and text messages can stay anonymous.
