The Alabama Bureau of Investigating is probing the case of a man shot inside a car. The incident occurred early Sunday morning on Cotton Box Road in Slocomb.

Police Chief Don White said the person who apparently committed the shooting was riding inside the car with the victim. The shooting caused the vehicle to wreck. The shooter fled the scene. The chief said officers were notified by a woman riding in the car.

White said the victim was taken to a hospital where he is recovering from what’s described as non-life threatening injuries. Other injuries are related to the wreck and not the shooting.

No charges have been filed at this time.
