Sacramento man shot in leg at gas station

A Sacramento man was shot at a south Sacramento gas station Thursday evening after a reported fender-bender on Highway 99, according to the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department.

Department personnel received a call at 6:01 p.m. saying that a man had been shot in the leg at a Chevron gas station at Stockton Boulevard and Elsie Avenue.

Police say that the victim's girlfriend, a passenger in the victim's vehicle, said they had pulled off of the freeway and into the gas station to exchange information with the driver of a green van.

The driver of the van allegedly got out of the car, shot the victim in the leg and fled in his vehicle. The victim is being treated at Kaiser South Medical Center.

Deputy Jason Ramos said that there are conflicting stories about the suspect's getaway. Other witnesses said the suspect fled on foot.

The suspect is described as a heavyset black man wearing a light-colored shirt and dark shorts.
