Police Captain Paul Forrester tells KSAL News that 28-year-old Joseph Valdez was transported to Salina Regional Health Center on Saturday evening after his neighbor applied a tourniquet on his leg and called 911.

Police say Valdez was not cooperative in answering questions about how he was shot in his upper left thigh.

As a felon he is now facing possible charges that could include felony possession of a gun, possession of meth with intent to distribute within 1,000-feet of a school.
