Unknown Shooting Hospitalizes Man

Authorities said they were called to the Luminis Health Anne Arundel Medical Center on Saturday around 3:38 p.m. for a walk-in gunshot victim.

The victim reported that he awoke Friday morning with an unknown cut and pain in his foot, a press release said. 

The pain continued, so police said he went to the hospital.

Doctors took X-rays and discovered that the pain was from a gunshot wound to his foot, officers said.

The victim wasn't aware of the shooting at the time it happened, the Annapolis Police Department said.
