ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - A man has been hospitalized after being found with a gunshot wound in NW Roanoke Monday morning, according to the Roanoke Police Department.

Police say they responded at 9:30 a.m. to the 1600 block of Grayson Ave NW for reports of a person who had been shot.

The man was taken to Roanoke Memorial Hospital. Police say his injuries are believed to be non-life-threatening.

Early investigations by police indicate the shooting didn’t take place on Grayson Ave. Police haven’t yet established a scene and no one has been arrested.

One woman told WDBJ7 she called police after hearing shots and helped a man who had a gunshot wound.

“I was just panicking and the first thing I did was go in the house and wake my boyfriend up and let him know what was going on,” she said. “Then we both came outside and that’s when we heard the gun shot. So I called the police again.”

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the Roanoke Police Department at 540-344-8500.
