Just before 9:00pm Tuesday night Suffolk Police were called to the Valero Gas Station, located at 151 Hospital Rd in East Patchogue, after a report of a shooting incident.
A male reported that he was shot at that location and was going to nearby Long Island Community Hospital in the vehicle he was shot in. Police responded to both the gas station and the hospital and located the vehicle near the emergency room entrance, as well as evidence near the gas pumps. Inside the hospital an adult male was being treated for a gunshot wound by staff.
Suffolk Police 5th squad detectives and crime scene units were called to both locations to conduct an investigation and gather evidence. No description of the shooter was given.
