Niagara Falls police detectives continue to investigate the shooting this afternoon of a 25-year-old man as he was in his parked vehicle at Highland and Calumet avenues.

The victim told police two men he doesn’t know approached his car on foot shortly after noon and began shooting repeatedly at him, striking him once in the head.

Detective Lt. Michael Trane told The Buffalo News the injury is not considered life-threatening.

The victim, who Trane did not name, drove himself to Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center for treatment but he was transferred to Erie County Medical Center, where he was listed in stable condition this evening.

Detectives ask that anyone with any information call them at 286-4553.
