A gas truck driver was shot after making a stop on the city's north side.

Police said the victim had just finished a delivery around 2 a.m. at the 7-Eleven on Fredericksburg Road near Medical Drive.

As he left the gas station and began driving on Fredericksburg Road, someone in a dark-colored SUV driving in the opposite direction opened fire and hit him in the leg.

The dark SUV reportedly fled toward Vance Jackson and Interstate 10.

The victim went back to the gas station to ask for help. He was rushed to University Hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg.

Police are still looking for the suspect.
