A shooting in northwest Roanoke sent one man to the hospital Saturday morning.

At about 10:45 a.m., police responded to a report of shots fired in the 2500 block of Liberty Road, according to Lt. J.L. Stephens of the Roanoke Police department.

The victim, who was not identified, was taken to a local hospital with wounds that did not appear life-threatening.

No one had been arrested by late Saturday afternoon.

Stephens said the incident does not appear to be connected to a second shooting, about six blocks away at a home on Gandy Road, that left a 25-year-old man dead earlier Saturday morning.
