EASTLAKE -- Eastlake Police continue their investigation into how and why a man was shot in the chest in the Eastlake Wal-mart parking lot Monday night.

Eastlake Police tell Channel 3 News they received a call at  11:00 p.m. Monday night that a gunshot wound victim was at the hospital in Willoughby.

Apparently the 27-year-old Cleveland man drove himself to the hospital after claiming he was shot in his car in the Eastlake Wal-Mart parking lot.

The man told police he had pulled into a parking spot to go shopping when an unknown white suspect entered the passenger side of his car and demanded that he hand over "everything he had" before shooting the man in the side of the chest.

The suspect then left the area on foot and the victim drove himself to the hospital.

Investigators are reviewing store video in order to gather more information.

The victim was flown to Cleveland MetroHealth Medical Center where he is in stable condition.

Anyone with information should contact the Eastlake Police Department at 440-951-1400.
