NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Police are investigating another shooting on Interstate 26 outside of Charleston - a stretch of road that has seen several such incidents in recent years.

North Charleston police spokesman Spencer Pryor tells local media outlets that an officer saw a pickup truck with a flat tire pull into an urgent care center just off the interstate about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The truck had been riddled with bullets and the man driving it suffered a gunshot wound. The truck was towed from the parking lot and the man was treated at the urgent care center.

The stretch of I-26 through North Charleston has been the scene of several shootings in recent years. From 2011 to early 2013, two people were killed and five wounded along the expressway.
