An18-year-old man was shot in the face Saturday afternoon walking near the ABC package store on McFarland Boulevard in Tuscaloosa.

Captain Kip Hart, the assistant commander of the Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit, said the wounded man was shot by an unknown assailant as he walked down the street and ran into the package store afterward.

Police were on the scene Saturday afternoon, with caution tape blocking entry to the store, but Hart said the ABC was not involved in the incident otherwise.

Hart said the man's injuries do not appear to be life-threatening. More information will be released as it becomes available.
