A man told police he was shot in the back while driving down US 281 near the I-35 interchange northwest of downtown early this morning, 1200 WOAI's Morgan Montalvo reports.

 

  Police were called to the man's home on the city's east side about 2:30 this morning on a report of a shooting.  When they arrived, they found a man with a bullet in his back, and two holes in his Jeep.

 

  The man told investigators he had been shot while driving down the highway.

 

  He was rushed to University Hospital with serious wounds.

 

  Police said they did receive a report of gunfire in the area about the time the man says he was shot, but detectives are still checking out his story, and aren't ready to say if the shooting was random or if somebody specifically shot at the victim.
