Update: Man, Shot, Has "Non-Life Threatening" Injuries
A 29 year old Watertown man suffered what city police describe as "non-life threatening injuries" when he was shot early Saturday morning.
Police had not released the man's name as of mid-afternoon Saturday. They said he was taken to SUNY Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse for treatment. It wasn't clear whether he was still in the hospital, or had been treated and released.
Police were called to the 500 block of State Street at 1 a.m. Saturday, when the man approached an employee of Seth's Pub, a bar in the 500 block, outside the bar and said he had been shot.
The operator of the bar told 7 News Saturday the man had first gone to a near-by Sunoco station but had been unable to get assistance there. A man at the Sunoco station said the first anyone knew of the shooting was when police arrived.
Police said they were told the shooting took place at the corner of High and State streets. They released no other details Saturday, but asked anyone who was in the area at the time of the shooting, or who has information about what happened, to call them at (315) 782-2233.
The injured man was driven as far as Pulaski early Saturday morning, and then flown to Syracuse.
The online news site NewzJunky has additional photos of the incident.
