Sioux Falls, S.D.–Early Monday morning, an 18 year-old  Sioux Falls man was brought to the hospital with a single non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his abdomen.

Police believe that the incident happened in the 4600 block of West Oleanna Place.

The two men who brought the victim to the hospital said that they didn’t see what had happened, only hearing the noise and then finding the victim with the wound.

The victim himself did not provide details on how or why he was shot.

Police spokesman Sam Clemens says investigators will be following up with others who are thought to have been at the residence where the man was shot to piece together exactly what happened.
