ROANOKE, Va. – Roanoke police are investigating a shooting that left one hurt early Thursday.

Police say around 4 a.m., they were notified of a person with a gunshot wound in the 1100 block of Forest Park Blvd NW.

Authorities say responding officers did not find anyone hurt at the scene but did find a residence that contained evidence of a shooting.

Additional officers arrived at the hospital to speak with the injured male, according to police.
