NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– A New Haven man who was shot in the head drove himself to the hospital on Thursday night.

Police say that at around 8:23 p.m., a 27-year-old man was shot on Winthrop Avenue, between Parmelee Avenue and Judson Avenue. Officers had responded to 911 calls that reported gunfire in that area and found evidence of gunfire in the roadway.

A short time later, police say that the victim arrived by private car to Yale New Haven Hospital. He had driven himself several blocks despite being injured. He was then treated for a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the side of the head. His current condition and identity were not released.
