Gas station shooting in Fitchburg

A man was shot in the face at a Fitchburg gas station, according to a release from Fitchburg police.

Police said they were called to a hospital at 7:30 p.m. Thursday for a report of a man with facial injuries.

The man told police he was in a vehicle in a parking lot of Kelley Mobil at 2956 Fish Hatchery Road when a man approached and shot him in the face.

The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The shooter was described as black, in his early 20s and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt. It’s not known what kind of gun was used. He said the shooter ran south on foot after the shooting.

Police said the victim is being uncooperative so they can’t determine if the men knew each other. They’re also trying to determine if a gun was used, or if it was a stun gun or Taser.

Anyone with information is asked to call Fitchburg police at 608-270-4300.
