  • ()

A 50-year-old Rome man is recovering from a gunshot wound to his leg that he said came from someone driving by in a car.

Rome police were called to Redmond Regional Medical Center Sunday night after the man went there for treatment. He told officers he was walking down Wilma Drive when he heard a pop sound, felt a sting in his leg, looked down and saw blood.

The victim said he saw a vehicle and what looked like a gun just before the shot, but he couldn’t provide a description of the car.
