Panama City police pulled over an erratic driver Tuesday evening only to find themselves in the middle of a mystery. Now, they're trying to come up with the clues to solve the case.
A Panama City police officer pulled over the driver of a car at Frankford Ave and West 17th Street to find out why he was weaving around on the road.
When the officer approached the car he found the man was bleeding from what appeared to be a gunshot wound. Paramedics took the man to a local hospital for treatment.
Back at the scene, detectives and crime scene technicians began going over the vehicle. They found bullet holes in the car, and one of the windows was shattered, apparently by a bullet.
Detectives say the man could have been shot Monday night. Police had a report of a shooting in the area of the Macedonia/Pana-villa apartment complexes, but when officers arrived, they didn't find anything unusual, and a search of the local emergency rooms didn't turn up anything.
Now they believe the man they found Tuesday night may be the one who was shot Monday night. They believe this man have been some kind of drug deal that went bad. They're still looking for the person who shot the man.
Police have not released his name, but they say he suffered a flesh wound to the body. He's expected to make a full recovery.
The shooting victim is being charged with possession of crack cocaine as well as leaving the scene of an accident with property damages.
