A man was flown to the hos­pi­tal on Fri­day night with se­vere in­juries af­ter he was shot in the neck in Wal­dorf, ac­cord­ing to au­thor­i­ties.

Af­ter be­ing shot, the 29-year-old vic­tim drove him­self about two miles to a gas sta­tion on Berry Road to seek help.

Around 9:11 p.m., Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice deputies were dis­patched to the BP gas sta­tion lo­cated at 10195 Berry Road. The shoot­ing oc­curred shortly be­fore in the 2200 block of Bri­dle Path Drive, ac­cord­ing to po­lice. The mo­tive re­mains un­clear, po­lice say, but in­ves­ti­ga­tors be­lieve the in­ci­dent may be drug re­lated.

The vic­tim’s in­juries ap- pear not to be life threat­en­ing, ac­cord­ing to au­thor­i­ties.

The gas sta­tion’s man­ager, Patty Re­basco, was not there when the wounded man showed up, but she ar­rived shortly af­ter he had been trans­ported to the hos­pi­tal and spoke with her em­ploy­ees about the in­ci­dent.

Ac­cord­ing to Re­basco, the man came into the store bleed­ing heav­ily onto the floor from his neck and told an em­ployee that he had been shot and to call 911.

Paramedics re­sponded soon af­ter and be­gan treat­ing the man, who ap­peared to be los­ing con­scious­ness by the time they ar­rived, she said.

Po­lice are not re­leas­ing any ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion on the in­ci­dent at this time. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion con­tin­ues.
