On August 24, at around 11:30 p.m., Lebanon City Police Officers were dispatched to the 200 block of South Quince Street for a reported vehicle crash.
Once at the scene, police say they found a 20-year-old Lebanon man, with a gunshot wound to the lower abdomen.
Officers learned that the reported vehicle crash happened when the driver struck an object along the street while trying to take the injured man to the hospital.
