Today, the official police report documents were released from a shooting on Tucson's east side.

It happened last week, and left the victim - Paul Disner - with a bullet lodged in his neck. 

He was driving northbound on Harrison Rd. for a bite to eat when he noticed a car parked on the side of the road. When he drove past the car, his driver's side window shattered, and he noticed a severe pain in his neck. Stunned and unaware of what was going on, he drove up the road to a Circle K on Golf Links and Harrison, where he asked for help.

The report has some new information from the night. It explains Disner "witnessed the shooter get into an unknown vehicle and flee the scene." It also states that he saw "one to two muzzle flashes," 

When asked about what happened, the victim explained to officers "he was not involved in illegal activity and does not use illegal drugs." His wife later added that she "could not think of anybody who would want to hurt Paul."

As for a potential road rage issue, Disner said, "he was not involved in a traffic altercation prior to the incident."

Disner explained the whole event is very foggy, and he doesn't remember a lot from the night.

Now, more than a week later, he still has the bullet lodged in his neck. He went to a surgeon Thursday to get it examined, and hopes to have it out as soon as possible.
