Police are investigating after a man arrived at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital on Wednesday night with gunshot wounds.

Officers came to the hospital about 10:45 p.m. to speak with the victim, who had arrived in a personal vehicle, the Roanoke Police Department said Thursday.

Police described the injuries as not life-threatening.

Detectives are still trying to find out where the shooting took place, and no arrests have been made, the department said.
