COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Colorado Springs police are investigating after a man says he was shot after denying another man’s request for a cigarette.
Investigators say the man was dropped off Monday at Memorial Hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg. The injury was not life-threatening.
The man tells police he was out walking when he was approached by an unknown man who asked for a cigarette. When the victim told the man he did not have a cigarette, the other man pulled out a gun and started shooting.
