TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN9-TV) -- Tucson Police say a man was shot at while driving near Harrison and Escalante.

Sgt. Pete Dugan with TPD says the 911 call came in just before 10 p.m.

Officers say an adult male was driving when his window blew out. He managed to pull into a nearby Circle K near the Golf Links and Harrison.

Dugan says it appears someone did shoot his window. A bullet grazed the man's neck area, and he was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police were able to speak with the man, and he was conscious when they arrived, Dugan says. 

Initial reports indicate that this may have been a random shooting. Officers do not know where the shots came from.
