WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Waco police are investigating a shooting that sent a man to the hospital early Saturday morning.

The shooting happened about 2:15 a.m. in the parking lot of the Alon convenience store on North 25th Street and West Waco Drive.

The victim was taken to Scott & White Medical Center Hillcrest. It's unclear how he's doing.

The suspect was wearing a dark shirt and jeans. He ran from the scene and has not been arrested, Swanton said.
