Colorado Springs Police are investigating a shooting early Tuesday morning that left the victim with serious, but non-life threatening injuries. 

The victim was taken to St. Francis Medical Center for treatment. That's where officers learned he had parked earlier in the evening near the Walmart off of Platte Avenue, then exited his vehicle.

He reportedly was walking along the 3200 block of E. Platte Avenue when he was encountered by a black or Hispanic male.

For reasons unknown, the victim was shot in the upper chest area after a brief exchange with the suspect. 

No arrests have been made at this time.
