A 19-year-old man was taken to hospital after police said someone shot him Tuesday night outside the InTown Suites extended-stay motel, police say.

Police said the man was conscious and breathing when ambulances reached him after someone began driving him to hospital in a personal vehicle.

The shooter fled the scene in the parking lot outside the motel in the 6000 block of South Cooper Street after firing shots just after 6 p.m. Tuesday, police said. They don’t believe the attack was random.

Officers are working to identify the shooter and no arrests have yet been made, police say. At least one motel room was damaged in the shooting, but no other injuries were reported.
