Man Wakes Up to Discover Gunshot Wound to His Leg

A man told police he awoke inside a tent in a wooded area near Interstate 5 and Harborview Medical Center Wednesday to find he’d been shot in the leg.

Police were called to Swedish Hospital after the patient arrived with a gunshot wound. The 41-year-old victim told officers he was sleeping, and awoke around 3pm to discover a gunshot wound to his right shin.

He was heavily medicated for the pain at the hospital and could not tell officers the location of the tent, who shot him or why.

Police are investigating the incident.
